The infamous dividing point between West and East Berlin is now a tourist attraction. I walked across Checkpoint Charlie in the early 70's. It was a creepy and life-changing experience of walking a few yards from freedom to totalitarian oppression. Literally, the sun shone differently on the other side. This view looks from what was West Berlin into what was East Berlin. Note the improbability of the somewhat racy clothing advertisement where once stood the grim reminder of Communist oppression. Also, note the shoes flung over the wire on the right.
