III. AK Genkdo in Berlin

Recommended Posts

Looking for some help re the III. Armeekorps Generalkommando headquarters facility in Berlin.
I understand that in the 1914 time frame, the building was located near Magdeburger Platz at the
address: 2 Genthiner Str., and co-located with the Intendantur, as the below map shows:

I've tried for 20 years to find an image of this building, no success... but then .... I found the below
undated photo which is great. I'm very very happy .... There's always a however, though, and I think
Genthiner Strasse is not really in Charlottenburg, as is labeled on the photo.

So, wondering if the photo is indeed the Genthiner Str building??   Or, maybe another III.AK Genkdo facility
that was actually in the Charlottenburg section??:

I checked the address of the GK in 1888, 1900, 1903, 1910. It was always at Genthinerstrasse 2, Berlin West.

The picture was supposedly published in 1903. So Charlottenburg seems to be wrong. It is a bit more to the north-west of the Genthiner Strasse.

Tks GreyC!  I will assume then that the photo caption is correct, except for locating the building in (nearby) Charlottenburg.
Such a nice building, seems there would be more published photos.

1914 the adress was the same. But the post code of Genthiner Str. was W35. That means Schönefeld


The Nollendorf Platz was the south-east corner of Charlottenburg, Genthiner Str. was just a few footsteps away...

It was exactly on the line Charlottenburg/Schönefeld

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
