Spittelmarkt, Berlin-Mitte, 1909 (photo: Waldemar Titzenthaler)

A stunning photo of one of the most interesting and most busy Berlin streets and squares before WW2 – gone entirely afterwards.

Two elements here are directly connected to Kreuzberg: the horse-drawn omnibus No. 3 which ran from Marheinekeplatz (see previous posts) through Hallesches Tor, Leipziger Strasse, Spittelmarkt, Alexanderplatz to Landsberger Tor (today Platz der Vereinten Nationen) and one of the commercial signs (hanging on the building at No. 14) for an archictect´s bureau of one Arthur Segall in Gitschiner Strasse 107, very close to Belle-Alliance-Brücke and today´s Mehringplatz.

Details matter:-)
