Berlin street addresses in 1930s #germany

I've found two ways of finding street addresses: the telephone directories and (in a couple of cases) the 1939 Minority Census. Can anyone suggest another means?

The historical Berlin directories are online here: https://digital.zlb.de/viewer/berliner-adressbuecher/
Telephone directories are not very useful because few people had a telephone line in the 30s. For Berlin, they are here: https://digital.zlb.de/viewer/cms/145/

i followed the link for Berlin, and found Address Books before there were telephones.  My wife's name Dembitzer occurs 38 times, including a 1912 and a 1922 address book.  It is also possible that before individual ownership phones in an apt buildings' lobby were listed for all occupants.

I find the "histomap" website of the Berlin State Archive quite helpful. It allows you to check old street addresses from, let's say the 1930s, against a present-day map of Berlin. You can superimpose historical maps on recent ones and thus verify if, how and when street names and house numbers changed over the past 100+ years.
