The Zastava 1100 shown on the last thumbnail is worth to mention, because it was quite rare in the GDR. The Mazda 323, visible on the same pic, belonged to a West Berlin or West German visitor. Identifyable by the size of the plate and the fact, too, that only it's successor, the facelifted 1978+ 323, was exported to the GDR (together with the 10 000 VW Golf, the Citroen GSA and the Volvo 244).

The location, the Bahnhof Friedrichstraße, was until 1990 very unique. It was (located in the middle of the East Berlin center)divided in an Eastern and a Western part. The Western part (resp.the part only for Western people) was not reachable for GDR-citizens. There were two Western subway-lines, which were crossing East Berlin, but the stations were closed since August 1961 ( http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geisterbahnhof - "Geisterbahnhof" means "ghost station" ). It was a very strange feeling to pass them. Totally surrealistic.
I'm very happy, that I could have made this experience, too, until it was too late :)

Btw.: as a Western subway-passenger, you could cange these two lines at the Bahnhof Friedrichstraße, so you could walt on GDR-ground without being in the GDR. And these two lines were controlled by the West Berlin-customs-officers - in that station there was an "Intershop", a GDR-owned shop, where you could buy several Western products for Western money (only for Western money). It was attractive for us Western people to smuggle alcohol and cigarettes, because they had been much cheaper. Yes, I've done this illegal things, too. ;)

On the backside of the Bahnhof (not visible on the thumbnail), there was the "Tränenpalast" ( = "The Tear's Palace" ), the entry to the border-control-point inside this station. And this place, a steel- and glass-building from the 60ies, was not reachable for GDR-people. The had to stay outside and let their Western freiends walk back alone.

Ja, das Bild ist ein schönes Zeitdokument. Für die West-deutschen Schüler (auf der obligatorischen Berlin Klassenfahrt) war das jahrzehntelang der erste Eindruck von Ost-Berlin und der DDR.
