Berlin: [1989]. Folded leaf, measuring 29.8 × 42 cm, folded measurements 29.8 × 21 cm. Very good. Item #6407

This map was evidently published in December 1989 to inform both East and West Berlin residents about the impending integration of the East Berlin transit system into the West Berlin U-Bahn, S-Bahn, and train service. The sudden influx into West Berlin of tens of thousands of GDR citizens led to great logistical difficulties and a near collapse of the public transportation system, explaining the need for the present map. On the map, the border is still demarcated, with red dots indicating pedestrian crossings. The information on the verso also explains the new ticket prices and rules for transversing the old inner-German border. An interesting relic of the post-Wende period.
