Potsdam today: the Potsdam Schloss, rebuilt from the ground up, looks great. High hopes for the Berlin Schloss which is being rebuilt at the moment.

West Berlin 1988: The Wall provided a ‘Bohemian’ back-street which stretched right across the city.

Update: I visited this place today, and I was told that the guy at the top of the picture is Peter Unsicker, who is still at the wall-streetgallery. They have a website under that name.

Repost.

Berlin today. At the Mauerpark. It’s TOO hot! So I’m in a café drinking cola.

Berlin 2014: Tauentzienstrasse.

To those afraid for my health in this sun, don’t worry, I’ve got suncream and a hat.

Coming to Berlin… Finally things have worked out, and I will be back in Berlin on the 17th July for a while. Any of my followers there want to see me, let me know.

Berlin Wall 1993: This is the ‘East-Side Gallery’ section of the Wall along Mühlenstrasse by the River Spree coming from the Oberbaumbrücke.

Berlin 1991: Stall with Soviet paraphernalia and shards of the Berlin Wall, (maybe), by the Brandenburg Gate. The Langnese ice-cream truck looks to be the only trader making sales.

Berlin 1993: Unter Den Linden. At the end the fake Berliner Schloss made of canvas and scaffolding can be seen. Inside an exhibition about the future of the Schloss site was held.
