Kaiser Wilhelm Church Berlin 2017

60 years ago in 1957 a young 19 year old British Soldier was in BERLIN Germany with his British 'Ensign Selfix 16/20 Model II camera and took some of the sights. 60 years later he went BACK for 3 days with an Ensign Selfix 16/20 Model 1 camera and tried to take the SAME sights!! The trouble was all the TREES have grown up !! It used to be possible to view the Reichstag from the Brandenburg Gate across the wasteland which was the Tiergarten, destroyed by Russian Tanks and Berliners using the trees for fuel -- NOW there is a huge black Forest obscuring the view !
