Checkpoint Charlie (1961)

Berlin

At the north end of the original MP guard shack, American infantrymen armed with a bazooka and automatic rifles, face the Soviet Sector line. The sign over 207 Friedrichstrasse gave the world an enduring name for the area and a symbol of the events taking place. (Photo courtesy of Army Magazine)
