Carl Baehr, a librarian, researched the background of Milwaukee street names over a period of six years, using maps, records, histories, newspapers, interviews, and other sources before writing this book. The book covers Milwaukee’s eight hundred street names and offers fascinating glimpses into the city’s rich heritage; from French fur traders to Yankee speculators, from wealthy German tycoons of the Gay Nineties to African American leaders of the 20th century.
This book is out-of-print and we are selling used copies. The books are in fair condition.
