Fotoeins Friday around Munich: the 1st U-Bahn

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.

“An dieser Stelle wurde am 1. Februar 1965 mit dem Münchener U-Bahn Bau begonnen.”
(Construction for Munich’s U-Bahn began at this location on 1 February 1965.)

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.

Fotoeins Friday in the Munich Metro: Westfriedhof

I highlight the interiors of four U-Bahn metro stations in Munich, Germany:

6 November – Georg-Brauchle-Ring,
13 November – Lehel,
20 November – Marienplatz, and
27 November – Westfriedhof.

The comings and goings at Westfriedhof station are apparent with this 1-second image. The train station serves U-Bahn lines U1 and U7, and is named for the adjacent 50-hectare (124 acres) cemetery in the western part of the city.

I made the above pictures between 22 February 2017 (IG) with a Canon EOS6D mark1 and the following settings: 1-sec, f/22, ISO500, and 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-ip7.

Fotoeins Friday in the Munich Metro: Marienplatz

I highlight the interiors of four U-Bahn metro stations in Munich, Germany:

6 November – Georg-Brauchle-Ring,

At the familiar orange that is Marienplatz, the U6 train has just departed for Klinikum Grosshadern. Marienplatz serves the U-Bahn U3 and U6 lines, and is also a major transfer hub for S-Bahn trains.

I made the above image on 23 February 2017 (IG1, IG2) with a Canon EOS6D mark1 and the following settings: 1-sec, f/22, ISO400, 28mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-ip4.
