“The Wall Through Berlin (12 genuine photos)” – Berlin Wall

In the early 2000s, I received this set of 12 miniature (9 cm X 7 cm) black and white photos of scenes of the Berlin Wall after a relative found it at a university book sale. Based on the images in the set, it appears that this was produced in the 1960s. The photos come packaged in a glossy envelope bearing the title Die Mauer Durch Berlin (“The Wall Through Berlin”) and includes captions in German, English and French on the back of each photo. This item was produced by the Berlin company Kunst und Bild (Art and Photo) as a souvenir item for tourists.

The pictures are of very high quality and I’ve included each of them, with their original captions, below.
