Tramscape Tramway Photographs


Magdeburg, Germany : 26th March, 1991
This series covers central Magdeburg in the first year after the unification of Germany. Most photos are taken on Breiter Weg, the northern part of which from Wilhelm-Pieck-Allee (now Ernst-Reuter-Allee) to Universitatsplatz was rebuilt in post-war modernist style after severe bombing during the Second World War. Pre-war buildings survive on the southern part towards Hasselbach Platz, which escaped destruction. Other views include Hauptbahnhof and the northern crossing of the River Elbe.
