    Arrow Soviet HQ, Berlin, Germany - April 2008 - Part2


    After completing the other buildings we rested, had a Dunhill and moved on to the main building.

    1. View from the back


    2. Blue room


    3. Paint


    4. Control


    5. 1st floor corridor shot




    6. 1st floor left wing corridor shot


    7. Partly sound proof room


    8. 'Da'


    9. View from the 1st floor central hall leading to stairs (right) and other corridors


    10. The central stairs


    11. A common floor design throughout


    12. Graffiti


    13. Basement machinery and Dojann on the right


    14. HUGE room (this photo doesnt really show how huge this room actually is)


    15. Science labs with 'blackout' blinds


    16. Side wing stairs


    17. 2nd floor corridor shot


    18. Behind me (after taking shot above)


    19. Science lab vents


    20. The local youth had removed seats and setup a base here for, what we can only assume, BB gun battles (there are 1000's around the building)

    21. Shower


    22. Very large office


    23. Walls


    24. The TOTALLY sound proof room. Dojann and I tried to talk to each other in here but could barely make out what each of us was saying. Very strange experience


    25. The lecture room


    26. Every single seat had graffiti


    27. View from the back


    28. Federal (left) / Dojann (right)


    29. Machinery


    30. Another corridor with stairs which lead upto 3 officers rooms


    31. 3rd floor central hall


    32. The roof area


    33. Leads upto a large water tank and others bits


    34. 'The' find of a lifetime. Original posters hidden away in a corner


    35. Poster detail


    We left the building and realised that we had no outdoor shots from the front. As it was already nearly 23:30 we had fun with 8minute exposures with NO REMOTE. Note the stars.

    36. From the right


    37. Standing outside a security hut


    38. From the left

    Only just realised there was a part 2 to this report. Glad I found it...it's an excellent tour. Enjoyed seeing everything here but was particularly ooohing and wowing over the posters. I've got a humungous book of soviet posters...fascinating things!
    Cheers :)
