Langgasse — It’s Seen It All

Fifty—one years have passed since the beginning of hostilities in Danzig. Forty-five years since this photo was taken on the Langgasse, from the steps of the Rathaus, with its broken lanterns. In the distance, the Stockturni looms over the Golden Gate, and the Hauptpostamt is next to the diagonally supported building on the left. Street car tracks and all vehicular traffic were removed after the war. Today you can sip a warm Pepsi under an umbrella on . the sidewalk (near the horse cart on the right). Contemplate the historical events, the destruction of 1945, Solidarity in the 1980’s.. .Langgasse/Duga has seen it all.
