I do these in the Photo Shop program, and love to do them. Anyone who has a then and now idea let me know and I'll consider it, if it's not to complicated.

Very cool photoshop, Johnny! The only thing is, the first photo is taken from the Tiergarten side of the Brandenburg Gate, and the second is taken from the Pariser Platz side...you can clearly see the Hotel Adlon through the gate in the first pic. The hotel was, and still is, on the Pariser Platz side of the gate.
Nice job! Thanks for posting it!

Yes, That's an impressive photo compairson by Johnnyrocket. However I agree that it would be much better if it were taken from the exact same position as in the first photograph, I.E. the Tiergarten side. Anyone here live in Berlin willing to take it from the exact position as the dead soldier photo?

.
Was and is again is more accurate... the original burned down shortly after the surrender... it was rebuilt more or less to the original plans in the 1990s.

I guess it is from the wrong side (WWII 60 years laterPhoto Shop image). If anyone out there has a correct view from the WWII PERIOD... PLEASE send it to me, and I'll work it up in photoshop, and post it here on the forum...I love these before and after photos.

It would be a lot easier to take a new one from today than to find one from ww2 period. The one with the soldier laying down is a good image, now someone who lives in Berlin just needs to take a picture from the same spot that one was taken, shouldn't be too difficult.

Berghof.

Hi all.
Has someone Infos or also Floorplans of the added Wing at Hitler´s Berghof?
I´ve heard somewhere that this added Wing was the Kitchen of the Berghof. I think that it was not only the Kitchen,there were some more Rooms.

I hope to hear soon something good.
Greetings from the Outskirts of Berlin

I received the full set of blueprints of the Berghof from Germany today. I will be working on getting some scans done. I was glad to finally see how the living quarters above AH's and Eva's bedrooms was laid out. I knew there was another level just didn't know how it was set up.

There are 14 pages similar to the one posted above.
