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

Grossartig!  Habe ich endlich das Genkdo-Frankfurt gefunden (neben dem Schaulspielhaus).

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
