Thirty-Four Brilliant West Berlin Postcards from the 1960s and 70s

It was on August 13, 1961 when the East German communists started to set up a wall between east and West Berlin, thus closing the last big escape hole in the iron curtain between east and West Germany. These postcards are of West Berlin during the 1960s and 70s.
