Weber in Basel BS

Post by Paul Burkhalter » Fri 25. Jan 2019, 15:46

I have two family photographs of my great-grandparents: Gottlieb (1863-1917) and Margaretha (1863-?) Weber. They show the front of bakers shops (Baeckerei). They lived in Basel.
I was told many years ago that there was a baker Weber at 17 Amerbachstrasse Basel. I went to this address in 2017, but it is an apartment block now - though other buildings in the street are similar.
So one photo is dated 1912 and has 'M. Weber' painted on the window. I assume this is Amerbachstrasse.
The other photo shows 'G. Weber' on the door and a number 55 on the wall.
Would anyone have access to street/business directories of this period that might give more info about the whereabouts of No. 55 photo, and confirm the Amerbachstrasse address. And dates if possible.
With many thanks,

Hi Paul,

The State Archives of Basel-Stadt have digitized the historical directories of the city with private and business addresses quite a while ago, but not yet made public so far. I suggest you contact the Archives in Basel and ask them to check both addresses. It would be helpful of course, if you could give them a date indication for the older photo, too.

Hi Peter,
Thank you for that information. I will send an enquiry.
Would you be able to send me a link to their website?
regards,
Paul

With many thanks to the GHGRB I now know the address.
G Weber is shown in the directories from 1906 at Breisacherstrasse 55, then from 1912 to 1917 at Amerbacherstrasse 17.
Therefore both images have been identified.
Kind regards,
Paul
