East Germany: Before and After

Posted herein are a series of before-and-after photos of East Germany, the first set taken in the years 1990-1991, the second taken from 2001-2003.

If anyone cares to extol the virtues of a communist society, then look upon its works, and despair.  What better evidence that capitalism, even the faltering version of the proto-Socialist European Union, works?  What would Walter Duranty say?

Check out all of them.

Update:  Der Spiegel has a larger selection.

Comments are welcome and discussion is open and encouraged. I expect that there will be some occasional disagreement (heaven knows why) or welcome clarification and embellishment, and such are freely solicited.

Consider that all such comments are in the public domain and are expected to be polite, even while contentious. I will delete comments which are ad hominem, as well as those needlessly profane beyond the realm of sputtering incredulity in reaction to some inanity, unless attributed to a quote.

Links to other sources are fine so long as they further the argument or expand on the discussion. All such comments and links are the responsibility of the commenter, and the mere presence herein does not necessarily constitute my agreement.

I will also delete all comments that link to a commercial site.
