I have landed in Berlin and was a bit amused to see these rather funky looking bears that the people here seem to adore. I got this image off Flickr, since I am having a bit of trouble uploading my own photos. This will have to wait until I am back in the States.
Today I got to tour the grounds of Haberling Transporte, owner-manged moving and storage company founded in 1907.
Mr. Dieter Kress the founder gave a wonderful tour of his facility which was absolutely huge. My favorite part though was seeing super old photographs from 1907 that showed how a moving company would move things in horse drawn carriages. There were several old vehicles on the grounds which where promptly photographed by me.
For a special anniversary commemoration the company founder also purchased one of the famous Berliner BÄR 'Bear of Berlin'.
If interested here is a pictorial history how Haberling started
. Click on Chronicle, it's worth a look for anyone interested in history.
