A few years ago, my wife acquired her Grandfathers slide collection (or rather saved it from damp in an old outbuilding!) and which included several boxes taken during a trip to Berlin in early 1964. I thought I would post some of these along with some of my own from trips made in 1980 and 2011. The 1964 visit was, we believe, organised by the USAF to show how the East German authorities were building up the wall and the collection is a fascinating glimpse of Berlin at this time and in particular the huge amount of damage that was still apparent and will show, even in 1980, in the east, had still not been repaired. Anyway, they may take a few days to post in full as I am trying to establish the location of as many as possible using Google Maps and Streetview and a surprising number I can pin down. I'll start with the flight to and from Berlin.
