Hamburg Now and Then - View from the Belltower of St. Michaelis - West

Hamburg Now and Then - View from the Belltower of St. Michaelis - West
Enlarge for plenty of details and compare!

The panorama of 1950 has been stitched from 6 old prints, taken by my dad mid April 1950, shortly after the tower had been opended to the public again. The rubble from the allied bombing raids of 1943 to 1945 has been cleared already but 70% of the buildings of the city are still in ruins.

The panorama of 2014 has been taken on April 11th, it shows a booming city with all scars from the war removed and all the gaps finally closed. However, one of the two big Bunkers still stands unimpressed ...

Klasse gemacht Lutz und toll, dass du noch die alten Fotos aufgetrieben hast und diese sogar noch ein Pano hergegeben haben...
Da kann man gut sehen, welche Entwicklung so eine Stadt mitmacht.

Moin Udo, das Projekt hatte ich schon Jahre auf dem Zettel, jetzt hat es anlässlich eines kleinen PA-Treffens in Hamburg endlich geklappt; sogar das Wetter hat mitgespielt! VG, Lutz

Thanks Roger. It has been a project in my mind for a couple of years. And I was really lucky with the weather. Greetings, Lutz

Macht richtig Spaß, durch deine Aufnahme zu wandern und die Geschichte Hamburgs ab 1950 zu sehen. Die Lücken durch die alliierten Bombenangriffe sind sehr, sehr groß.
Viele Grüße, Uwe

JA Uwe, die letzten Lücken sind auch erst so vor 10 Jahrengeschlossen worden. Für mich war diese Trümmerlandschaft damals normal, aber für meine Eltern muss das furchtbar gewesen sein. Vg, Lutz

Fantásticas tomas y comparación. Es impresionaante ver en aumentado la foto de 1950 y ver los grandes vacíos dejados por la guerra. Hoy la ciudad está magnífica, me encantó cuando la visité.,

... yes Bev, we should never forget, but some lunatics have again forgotten, that there will be only loosers after a war ...

Thanks and greets, Lutz

Wunderbare Gegenüberstellung. Oben sieht man noch deutlich die Kriegsschäden.

Finally had time to check these through in full size (not just full screen but the original size)! Plenty of interesting details to see. For example I didn't know there were those big bunkers also in Hamburg. I thought they were built in Berlin only.

The big one, which is still there was the combat bunker equipped with heavy gunnery. The smaller one, which has been demolished in the fifties was the fire control bunker. The bis one resisted all attempts of demolishion.
