I think it is "Trierer Straße", in the document wrongly written together "Triererstraße". There is a Trierer Straße in Aachen and it has a number 137 and 139.

That could be close, but is the first letter a "T"? The rest would fit...

But I actually am looking for the name of the street on the death certificate, which is very different.

Thanks for the fast answer!
This might be because the death certificate says that "die Vorsteherin des Krankenhauses angezeigt [hat]", which means that she died in a hospital. The address given on that certificate is Altstraße 42, which is actually a parallel street of the Trierer Straße.

About the question if the first letter in the first certificate is really a T: I think it is. I double checked with my file of Süttlerlin-letters, and the r-letter is started in the "middle height" when you write it. This fits with where the second letter of the word is started. The second letter is imo a bit "overwritten" over the first one, which makes the first letter look like a F.
It is definitely Trierer Straße.
Thank you so much Jelena, for your wonderfull answer. I downloaded the Süttlerlin-letters, Thanks for mentioning it!

Love your work.

The street name on the death certificate is Altstraße 42, Aachen.

The letters could be Altstrasze; but sz is ß.

The Altstraße is a parallel street of the Trierer Straße in Aachen.
