Wow, let's calm down...

Berlin once again. This time, a rare photograph showing the Spittelmarkt in the late 19th century. The Gertraudenkirche (that little church displayed in this painting by Eduard Gaertner) was still standing, It was demolished in the 1880s.

Good job guys with this topic!

It's hard to believe how beautiful German cities were before WWII

I would like to ask you for small favor. Im looking for some old photos of the building where my family used to live before WWII.
First building was located vis-a-vis Train station. In this place there is Cinema City Complex.
Second one was located on the "Jopengasse/Piwna Street". In this place there is an exit from Naptun Cinema at the moment.
We lost all photos of my mother's family and it would be nice to take a look where did they live some time ago.

I will try to contact my grand parents to find exact address of this places.

Thanks in advance!

Now c'mon. Totally untrue, but not a discussion for this forum. Don't be misled, either....shades of gray are made of black and white.

The Karstadt building at Hermannplatz, Berlin







A small piece of façade can be seen today at Hermannplatz:

Anyone got any pre and post war pictures of Passau? I can't find any information anywhere as to whether it was bombed or not. Lovely city by the way.

The unbuilt Mitic department store in Belgrade was heavily inspired with Karstadt building but designed for a smaller corner plot. It can also be considered a sort of war victim because it was under construction but WW2 stopped its construction.

^ Wow, that'd have been one awesome building, too! What's in its place today? Did they reuse parts of what they've begun?


Chris: As far as I know, Passau was pretty much untouched in WW2.

You'll find tons of pics of any German city (pre-war and post-war) at the Bildindex: www.bildindex.de

They have dug the hole for foundation and started to pour concrete for the underground level before it was put on hold in 1940. The empty hole was there for some 20 years before it was filled again with earth. Even today that plot is called Miticeva rupa (Mitic's hole).

The plot is still empty after some 1000 proposals during the last decades and it's even not denationalized yet. Some people even speak that the plot is cursed. But in some wild dreams I think that some future investor could reuse the plan of the building.

No, Albanija is on Terazije and it's built in 1939-1940 as the HQ of Trgovinsko-investiocioni fond (finished one year before the war came to Yugoslavia).

This is a different building that was suposed to be a private owned department store (by Vlada Mitic) and built on Slavija square (it would be some 10 meters taller than Albanija).

Looking at these pictures, it's hard to believe that only a few buildings survived the war (and the following years).

By the way, interesting photo displaying both the old Berliner Börse and the Collegiate Church by Karl Friedrich Schinkel.

Another picture, view from Lustgarten


The Friedrichsbrücke and 'new' Börse, 1900s photochrom. Destroyed in WW2.

Between 1960 and 1982, probably. This photograph was taken in 1961:
