Above/featured: Near Nordfriedhof station, a steel girder at street level is a monument.
At the southwest corner of Ungererstrasse and Schenkendorfstrasse is a steel girder as modest monument, which marks the first day of construction of Munich’s metro or rapid transit system (U-Bahn) on 1 February 1965. The underground station here was initially called “Schenkendorfstrasse” which was changed later to “Nordfriedhof” for proximity to the city’s north cemetery. Including this latter station, the first Munich U-Bahn opened 19 October 1971 on the present-day U6 line with 13 stations over a 12-kilometre stretch.
The archival video “U-Bahn für München 1965” is available on YouTube in German. I made the two photos above on 22 Feb 2017 with a Canon EOS6D mark1. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-jAQ.
