Berlin Café Kranzler in 1985, undergoing a major restoration. This café on the Kurfürstendamm was a symbol of freedom and prosperity for West Berliners in the dark times when the city was divided. After reunification it struggled, and finally closed in 2000. The rotunda at the top now has a small café, but the rest of the building contains an up-market clothes store.
