Nice comparison shots of Nürnberger Straße at the corner with Tauentzienstraße, showing the Woolworth store building, which although burnt out in the allied air raids of November 1943, survived until the 1950s, when the site was developed with a new Woolworth store. In turn, that 1950s store survived until the 1990s.
A street vendor selling toys from the “Spielzeugschachtel” or “Toy Box” in the late 1930s. In the background a milkman from the traditional Berliner ‘Bolle’ dairy can be seen. Bolle sadly has also now disappeared, surviving until about ten years ago.
