Retro Berlin Photos

I’ve just acquired a small collection of photographs of Berlin during the Cold War period. The images are all on 35mm slides and some date from 1974, while others from 1990. In essence they are someone’s holiday snaps but they give a fascinating insight into Berlin during this period.

The image above shows the Russian WW2 Memorial on Straße des 17 Juni. I will be posting more of these images in the future but I wanted to post one today and test out the Google Maps functionality with WordPress, to link the image with a map of the area. This should prove useful for later posts on Berlin.
