On September 20th, 2012 I wrote the following:

“Yesterday, Tuesday, our destination was Bayerischer Platz. Just round the corner is Bozener Strasse, where I grew up. I felt quite nostalgic to see my old stomping ground again. We picked up a few large, shiny, rather big chestnuts from under the huge tree at the end of Bozener Strasse. I remember this tree very well from my childhood!”

I mentioned this chestnut tree in this blog: https://auntyuta.com/utas-early-childhood-2/

This picture under the chestnut tree was taken on the 9th June 1940, my brother Bodo's second birthday.

    Lovely trip down memory lane. So much has happened since that first picture underneath the chestnut tree, hasn’t it?
    Thanks Uta.

      These trips down memory lane certainly mean a lot. Bozener Strasse looks very different to me now. When I was a kid no cars were parked there, none whatsoever!
      Wishing H and you a beautiful Mother’s Day! 🙂

    ThaThose pictures are really intriguing Uta, its a living story of returning to the past, to have so many things occur in your life since the early days of a little girl under a chestnut tree.

      For sure, Ian, this chestnut tree brings back memories, but also the “Kiez- Kneipe” Robbengatter, a pub and cafe. Used to be called Dramburg in my time. The medical doctor and poet, who lived in our street after the war, he liked the Robbengatter.
      Cheerio, Uta
