Berlin

I have moved recently and amongst the mess of all my things i was glad to discover some negatives i thought was lost. The photos were taken in Berlin 1988 during a school trip we made when i went to art school. The camera was a Rolleicord with Xenar 3.5. If anyone recognizes where the pictures are taken please let me know. Thanks / Ola
