Brandenburg Gate, Berlin, before 1961
A FINE original vintage poster of the Brandenburg Gate on a beautiful day not long before it was sealed off by the building of the Berlin Wall in 1961.
74cm x 50cm
The poster has been folded but is in very good condition. If you would like to know more please get in touch.
When the Berlin Wall was built, the gate was enclosed in an ‘exclusion zone’ and the scene captured here became impossible. The gate, dating from the 18th century and once part of the city walls, is a symbol of German unity. The poster was issued by the German tourist authority, the Zentrale für Fremdenverkher, and printed by Meissenbach-Riffarth & Co.
