Alte Jakobstraße / Kommandantenstraße

The Wall line curves here and heads down the Kommandantenstraße past the Bundesdrückerei (Federal Printers) towards , where they print bank notes and specialize in high security ID technology, for instance EU passports. Fascinating, but no way to get in there. There are some excellent photographs of this street and many other points along the Wall on the website of photographer Hendrik G. Pastor (French soldier and later official photographer of the U.S. Airforces in Westberlin): Also very interesting is the comprehensive multi-media Chronicle of the Wall
