1890 Baedecker...

On a recent trip to St Andrews, I managed to get a (damaged) Baedecker Northern Germany volume for £4!
It has a lot of information on the route to Ruritania - trains on the Dresden-Prague line (which, as we all know, goes via Zenda and Strelsau!), maps & c. Something that strikes me is that the railway line follows the river Elbe, which must flow right through the country, and be one of its economic mainstays for trade.

I hope to post more on this as I investigate the book...
