Belle-Alliance-Platz (today Mehringplatz) at Hallesches Tor, with Friedrichstraße in the background and no Hochbahn, or today´s U1 viaduct, yet (1885)
It is an interesting point of view. At that time Melbourne profited from the gold rush on the Victorian gold fields and was probably the most advanced city in Australia.

Melbourne and Berlin are always both in a prominent position at any survey about the great cities of the world.
