BTW Is Grunewald a suburb of Berlin? Judging by the houses I take it the rich people in the 1890's-1910's started moving out of the city to build big houses instead of Wohnhaus? Had not heard of it.
Yeah, Grunewald is sort of a suburb, but still inside the city borders. In fact it's just on the edge of more densely built-up areas. Areas like that were fairly typical for that time and can be seen in many different cities in Germany, like Wiesbaden or Dresden. They were called "Villenkolonie" which literally translates to "Mansion colonies". Grunewald was just one of several in Berlin.

It used to be the entry of the station "Kaiserhof". The shown version of the entrance was destroyed by the Nazis to make space for rallies, most of the actual station got destroyed in WW2. Today the rebuilt station is called "Mohrenstraße"

Indeed.

I keep wondering what that building in the Neustadt picture is (the one with spires in the fifth picture, between the Dreikönigskirche and St. Francis Xavier).

That's a former post office building. The "Kaiserliches Postamt Dresden-Neustadt".

That was a fabulous historicist gem for sure! I once longed for its reconstruction at the Stadtbild Forum...

It's particularly sad that this city and its architectural jewels were obliterated, but what is even more disappointing is the utter and complete lack of will to reconstruct WHEN GIVEN THE CHANCE. The massive amount of building going on now (and for 20 years) in Dresden offered a rare opportunity to bring back its former beauty, at least in part. While we know the neumarkt is a blessed example of rebuilding the right way, it is a small percent of what could have been achieved. Today, planning continues with modernist/internationalist designs to fill in nearly all the plots east and north of the train tracks with no references to historic designs. I always object to many who claim the Neumarkt is a "fake", but when everything else looks like a suburb of Houston Texas, I guess there is a point the the authentic stuff is out of place.

At least the old photos looks awesome! Thank you! These plus a good Manhattan (stirred properly) make for some fine reminiscing.

From my point of view Germany of that time was the most beautiful country in the whole World ever.

Just imagine the sh*tton of excited girls who would dream about having their future wedding in Dresden, Leipzig, Berlin or even Cologne, Essen and Dortmund if most of that was preserved. For me it's just unimaginable that such cities ever had that classic beauty while you want to avoid them nowadays if at all possible.
