Two Perspectives of Alexanderplatz, 30 yards and 76 years apart.

Alexanderplatz, 1903
Alexanderplatz, 1979
Few cities have reinvented themselves more over the past 100 years than Berlin. The comparison of these two images illustrate the dramatic nature of this transformation. Both photographs were taken from the same section of elevated U-bahn track over Rathausstraße (once called Königstraße), and both are looking more-or-less north-northeastward.
