As an American youth, I was privileged to travel to Berlin via the autobahn known as the Berlin Corridor in 1980. At that time, there were two countries named Germany--one was a thriving landscape in free Western Europe and the other was communist, a Soviet stronghold. That was the way things had always been when I was 20, that was the way they'd probably always be. Little did I know that in slightly less than a decade, these two countries would be reunified.
These images are some of many that I took that depict life in Pre-Unification Germany.
