Muetzenfabrik

Article about: F.B. Reichenbach is about 10 km (6 miles) away from me. If you want, I'll make a photo of the building. If it is still standing.

    Another image from this series of what is likely the brauner Laden above. The retail of newspapers was an important source of NSDAP revenue in the Kampfzeit. These locales morphed later into the retail network of RZM vetted stores for NSDAP regalia. To be sure, the recent question has been the clothing cooperatives for officers of the armed forces, which would have been a different proposition surely.

    Here as a contrast to the shabby little Nazi stores of the era 1933 is what the Nazis loathed, a Jewish owned department store on a grand and marvelous scale, the Tietz establishment on Alexanderplatz. It was "aryanized..." as was essentially all of the Jewish owned garment and retail infrastructure and trade of the metropolis. Especially here in Alex and its environs on the eastern part of Mitte abutting Prenzlauer Berg and the outer environs was a large part of the apparel business, which was then wiped out by the end of the 1930s. This building did not survive the war, but Alexanderplatz remains a vibrant place in the new Berlin of the last two decades.

    How things look there today. I drive by under the rail overpass with some frequency.....The key is to avoid getting hit by the street car and all the wholesome girls on bicycles. The locals do not want you to drive in Berlin, but I have to get from Prenzlauer Allee to Potsdam on my own schedule.

    Here is an aerial view of Alex in 1935 as the locale was modernized, and the bicycle girls I so admire, with their wonderful long blonde hair and trim physique were present in another age. When you drive by them, if they don't smash into you, then you get a sense of their marvelous physique from a fetching view point....you see.

    This is one of the purposeful women near the Reichstag today. The television tower in the back is the locale of the historical pictures I have included of Alexanderplatz.

    Berlin is a truly great city, human, and endlessly interesting.

    PS. Maybe this woman's relatives have a complete black SS uniform, but you should not ask her, because she will slug you or have you arrested. I do not discuss my interests with the locals, actually, since there are more interesting aspects to life, really. Don't you think? None of these people is wearing a hat, either.

    A few hours research this morning revealed some interesting information about the former L.V.A building on 16/18 Puttkamer straße.

    It's currently the transport licence office for the Landesamt für Bürger- und Ordnungsangelegenheiten (LABO). I think this might the building in centre of the photo.

    There also use to be Maschinenfabrik company, Erhard & Gehner next door at number 15 and just around the corner at 217 Friedrichstraße, the Berliner Büstenfabrik company is still there and has been since 1932. Berliner Bstenfabrik. - So erreichen Sie uns

    One also notes that this neighborhood was in eastern Berlin from the time of the division of the city in the wake of the II World War until October 1990 and the unification of the Germanies.
