A funky little outdoor restaurant to service the many tourists that came to see the wall.  

West German border Guard. Doesn’t seem too impressed with his job.

According to my notes we had a hard time leaving Berlin. In those days Berlin was only joined to west Germany by a two lane road which was scary to drive down as the East Germans had every imaginable war machine on either side.

The road was very busy. Great lineups of trucks travelling to supply the city with western goods. This was the road that was shut down during the great airlift where plane after freight plane was used to keep West Berlin going.
