Documentary completed.
This is a silent film with piano music and very bizarre (and primitive) editing tricks. The topic is Berlin and different aspects of life in the growing world city.
If anyone wants some historic landmarks seen in this film, just comment, and I'll post them here.

Here's Berlin's first traffic light at Potsdam Square:

When Berlin was divided, the square became derelict, because it was located in the middle of the Berlin Wall. But today, a replica of the old "traffic tower" stands where the original one stood until some time between 1945 and 1961.

Another archive picture for rjluna2 :)

About the documentary: what is the relation to cars? In the guidelines about what is accepted or not, one can read:
Quote For documentaries and other non-fiction TV, it must have an interest for the site and somewhat a link to cars (i.e. avoid listing a documentary where you simply see shots made in the street with normal traffic cars).

Do your screenshots show anything else than "shots made in the street with normal traffic cars" from 1925?

It's from 1925 and therefore really old. Many scenes in it were made with actors, so it even might be possible to list it as a movie (although imdb says documentary).

Being original footage, I see no problem with listing this.
