Alexanderplatz, Berlin

Postcard from my collection, dated August 1908, but postally unused.  When Berlin was divided, Alexanderplatz was in East Berlin, I think I also have a postcard from that time.  It looked very different then (I will have to have a sort through my postcards from trips).
More about Alexanderplatz here (wiki link).
The statue that can be seen towards the centre right is of 'Berolina', built to glorify the troops of the Franco-Prussian War (1870-1871 ) (wiki link here).  Berolina stood in Alexanderplatz from 1895 to 1944.

  1. It shows the very elegant, important and busy place Berlin was at that time.
