Commercial Building

Max Jacob, Georg Roensch
1898




Historic Juwel-Palais

In this historic area of Berlin, an outstanding example of neo-Gothic architecture still stands, even though the road has been widened and the historic bridge converted to a pedestrian bridge. At the end of the 19th century these two architects were collaborating on several buildings in this revival style.
 

Bronze statue of St Gertrud

The old Gertraudenbrücke has become a pedestrian bridge and Gertraudenstrasse has been widened and is now a major roadway. The saint stands guard in this area. (I don't know the name of the sculptor or the date of the work.)
