@Linerberry: I´ve taken so many photographs of the "gate" over the years it´s hard to find something different to do.I´m glad you like this effort !!!

@MrsAmber: We should have taken more of us in the "Irish Harp" pub just round the corner from my Mother in-laws flat in Charlottenburg in the evenings or even stuffing "Currywurst" all day :-)
