I think I read where this is no longer the case since taller buildings have been built up around the terminal.


Not only that, those beautiful light beams are made mostly from backlit cigarette smoke, and today that terminal is smoke free.

I wonder if everyone back in the day smoked just to mask their body odor? This was a time before air conditioning, before every home had washers and dryers, before daily showers became popular... it was a smelly time.

This picture was taken during the wedding of the Kaiser’s daughter Princess Victoria Louise of Prussia.
The wedding, an extravagant affair, took place on 24 May 1913 in Berlin. In a diplomatic gesture, Emperor Wilhelm invited almost his entire extended family.

The wedding became the largest gathering of reigning monarchs in Germany since German unification in 1871, and one of the last great social events of European royalty before World War I began fourteen months later.

What makes the Hitler picture kind of scary is that he looks normal. Most pictures he is yelling, in military uniform, or surrounded by people in uniform that takes the normalcy away.

Talk about radical Islam screwing with everyday life in Afghanistan! What a stark contrast from today.

1950s & 1960s Afghanistan was really pretty modern. That's always a fun thing to google and see the vast differences verses now.
