Today’s Picture Depicts East German Soldiers Of The National People’s Army (NVA) Music Corps Lined Up Playing Their Instruments During a 25 Year Anniversary Honor Parade. Here You Can See a Prime Example Of Old Prussian Traditions Continued By The NVA  Through The Iconic Musician’s “schwalbennester”, These Ornaments Were Used By The Prior Prussian Armies Of Germany And Even In Limited Use With West Germany Only Being Used By The Border Guards Until 1974 Excluding The Bundeswehr Completely Even Until Today! Definitely Very Nice To See Another Great Picture Of The East German Army Continuing The Old Traditional German Customs! Very Nice Piece Of Cold War History! ----------------------------------------------------

The Palace of the Republic, Palast der Republik, in East Berlin was the seat of the parliament of the German Democratic Republic (also known as East Germany), the Volkskammer (People's Chamber), and also served various cultural purposes. Located between Schlossplatz and the Lustgarten (referred to jointly as Marx-Engels-Platz from 1951 to 1994) on an island in the River Spree, it also housed two large auditoria, art galleries, a theatre, 13 restaurants, a bowling alley, a post office, and a discothèque. On 23 August 1990, the Volkskammer ratified the treaty on German reunification, which was later also confirmed by the Bundestag in Bonn. The building was constructed between 1973 and 1976 on the site of the former Berliner Stadtschloss (City Palace), and was completely demolished by 2008 to make room for a reconstruction of the Stadtschloss, which began in 2013
-
-
Germans opposed the demolition and various protests by people who felt the building was an integral part of Berlin's culture and the historic process of the German reunification, in November 2003, the German parliament decided to demolish the building and leave the area as parkland until funding for the reconstruction of the Berlin City Palace could be found.

Apart of the original beauty of this building and of being considered a jewel of its era, its a mistake to erase the history of a country because of taking its past as a failure. Historical Icons must remain as beacons and reminders of what we have done, whatever was right or wrong. -

Tembok ini adalah tembok yang menjadi pemisah antara Berlin Barat dengan Berlin Timur. Pada tahun 1990 barulah secara resmi tembok ini diruntuhkan dengan ditanda tangangi oleh kedua belah pihak.

In 1836, a meeting was held at the East Berlin schoolhouse to consider building a railroad to connect York & Gettysburg. An act was passed to incorporate the ‘Wrightsville & Gettysburg Railroad.’ After its completion, J.S. Gitt, a civil engineer living in New Oxford made a survey to extend a railroad line to East Berlin.
.
Joseph S. Gitt (1815 – 1901) was a self-taught civil engineer, surveyor and politician from Pennsylvania. After an unsuccessful career as a newspaper publisher, Gitt went back into railroading, estimating that in his career, he had conducted 31 different railroad surveys for a total distance of over 300 miles in his career. Gitt either surveyed or engineered most of the railroads constructed in Frederick & Carroll counties in Maryland, & Adams County in the 1855-1885 period, with the exception of the civil war.
.
The Berlin Branch Railroad Company was formed, funding was raised through railroad bonds, & construction was completed in 1877. The branch train, also called the ‘Gospel Train’ because the three crewman (engineer, fireman, & conductor) were ministers of the Dunker Church. On one occasion, the conductor was stranded on the depot platform waving frantically. The train seemed to function just as well with a crew of two.
.
Back road distance from East Berlin to York was twelve miles ... but it was 32 by train, illustrating the train’s “runabout route.” In the early 1900s, many people traveled to York by way of Abbottstown using the Stage Coach. It was considered a more straightforward & less expensive way to travel. However, the Stage Coach Line began to lose revenue to a new innovation — the horseless carriage ... the automobile.
.
Details & old photos in this post are from “Wheels of Time” by the East Berlin Bicentennial Commission (1964) & my own research of Joseph Gitt.

A perfect movie. 👍❤

A perfect movie. 👍❤ "Good Bye, Lenin" (2003) directed by Wolfgang Becker. A moving picture in every sense of the word balancing perfectly a family drama (with some light comedy) and one of the most important events of Germany's post WW2 era: the fall of the Berlin Wall. A must watch. . . . . . @thedanielbruhl #goodbyelenin #wolfgangbecker #danielbruhl #katrinsass #mariasimon #florianlukas #ddr #brd #berlinermauer #fall #berlinwall #yanntiersen #berlin #eastberlin #eastgermany #history #coldwar #classicmovies #bestmoviesever #classicmovieslovers #film #movie #moviefan #movielover #cinephile #cinema #instamovies #filmstar #vincentsilverwolf #moviesaremyaddiction
