Thanks for that. It's great to see historical pictures like this, so I'm at least one person here who is grateful for your effort

Thanks! I've been to Berlin a few years later and it looked exactly like this (except for the cars) .
Today it's hard to believe that these were indeed the main touristical attractions in (West) Berlin.

These are great photos. Thanks for taking the time to post them.

I love Berlin, one of my favourite cities. Im also fascinated by its recent history. The Berlin of the late 70's was a city unlike any other in the world.

Those photos just show how much change has occurred in a relatively short space of time. Good work.

This is interesting. I'd love to see more though!

My parents were to East Berlin a few times during the 80's (since we were occupied by the USSR it was only the "communist bloc" countries we were allowed to visit...). Too bad I haven't got any photos to scan.

Wow, awesome photos! It's not very often that you get to see such pix, from the past like this, so thx for sharing.

That shot of the Reichstag Building is wonderful..

Aside from the cars and the dome atop Reichstag, Berlin remains pretty much the same (at least, what can be seen in these pics).

Thank you for sharing these pesonal pictures with us all
