Sunday stamps


For this week's theme, a stamp from the DDR (East Germany) issued in 1985 of the ‘Jungfernbrücke’, the oldest surviving bridge in Berlin.
You can read a little more about it here.

  1. That is an interesting and unusual way of depicting the bridge.

  2. It's a strange neighborhood. 99% of all the houses are gone and replaced by communist style buildings, but the old bridges are still there (like the nearby Gertraudenbrücke with a nice statue).

    1. I visited East Berlin in 1986, although we walked along 'Unter den Linden' (one of my main aims for the day), I didn't visit this bridge. It was a strange place then, a time-warp in many ways but with the communist buildings added, so I imagine it has changed again now.
      I suppose it's incredible that the bridges survive after all that Berlin as a city has been through.

  6. Its like an architectural drawing, a nice depiction. Like you say its amazing it survived. What struck me was although it is old its style also looks modern in the link photo.
