KREUZBERGED: BERLIN COMPANION

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

YOU ARE HERE: GITSCHINER STRASSE

Here are four images of the same section of the U1 viaduct in Gitschiner Strasse: all taken under the overhead U-Bahn line between the stations of Prinzenstrasse and Hallesches Tor.

Over a 100 years and two world wars separate the four photos.

      It sometimes almost kills me knowing that there are more of such images out there – the old, historic ones – but I cannot find them or even never will;-) I think I will spend the rest of my life searching for them.
