Maps on Monday - Germany

Two modern cards showing post-war Germany.  The first is a map of the areas of occupation as a whole while the second shows the former course of the Berlin Wall.

I can remember the disbelief I felt in 1989 when I heard the that the gates in the wall were now open.  Just a few months later I saw, on a noticeboard at work, a postcard from Berlin. It was one of those all black  ".... at night" ones.  I remember thinking was that the best someone could find at such a historic time.

  1. I visited Berlin in 1986 and went through Checkpoint Charlie, one of those places you never forget.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
