bring down the wall . . .



25 years ago today . . . .

Photos taken by me in May 1986.

  1. Nice photos. I didn't get to Berlin until five years ago, at which point the wall was much less robust than in '86.

  2. Very good day it was when it finally came down. I did visit Checkpoint Charlie while the wall was still up, and I was too young to really understand it all, but my relatives made it very clear very quickly.

  3. I visited Berlin a few years ago so I never saw the real wall in action. The piece shown in your first photo is still standing (part of the Topography Of Terror) link.

  4. It's a weird thing to say, but I'm glad I saw the wall before it came down. Not only a piece of history, but a reminder of the madness of men. If we need another reminder.
