Beautiful Vintage Color Slides of West Berlin in Summer 1953

This post was originally published on this site

After the end of the war, Germany was on its way to rebuild. A divided microcosm of the Cold War by the 1950s, West Berlin, however, was able to emerge from the severe rubble and successfully transformed into a “showcase of the West” from the economic miracle.

These fantastic Kodachrome photographs of the city were taken by Irma Louise, a Southern Californian, during the summer of 1953. For more fascinating vintage photographs, visit Found Slides.
