Checkpoint Charlie was the best-known Berlin Wall crossing point between East Berlin and West Berlin during the Cold War (1947–1991). While it was only one of several crossings in and around Berlin—there was also a Checkpoint Alpha and Bravo—Charlie was notable for its location on Friedrichstrasse, a historic street in the American-occupied city center. Fittingly, the first thing one encounters entering the former “American Sector” is a McDonald’s and a KFC. All photos taken with the Leica CL and the Super-Vario-Elmar-T 11-23mm ASPH lens.
