The Two Ideas of Small Town...



Welcome Back To 1985.

In two Astreins, both see a idea of a small town, on the different spectrum as expected, but how much? These two small towns are basically here to represent the lives of the small towns in a torn nation, and how polar opposite towns, still lead a common lead, to what was once a unified nation.


We look firstly, at the small town of Neuwiederitzsch, West Astrein.


More modern office buildings fill up the areas of the small town during the Astrein War. This town

was a major battle site, and most of the town with a few exceptions was leveled by the communist.

Which only, a few years earlier was also nearly flattened during the Second World War.


The old Raupenberg Street Hospital, survived the war with small damage, and since restored.


A Tract School, to accommodate students, and was quick to build. [Tract meaning Many built and easy to build

such as Tract Houses]


So ends the tour of the small town, and now across the Glasslow River and across the wall...


The town of Kleinapenburg, which was completely flattened originally during the Astrein War...


Though it has around 2,000 people living in just two housing towers and one single family residence, and outside of

that, it's industry, how great urban planning... :ohyes:


Before the split, this was actaully a much larger town, larger then Neuwiederitzsch, but most of that was destoryed

during WW2 and the Astrein War, as mentioned. Any traces of historical buildings, is completely gone in Kleinapenburg.


Pardon me, "Any traces of historical buildings, is completely gone in Kleinapenburg" is a strong statement, what I really

mean is that only two historical buildings left standing, after the 4-7 city blocks of historical homes and buildings. As seen

also, the main paved road ends, due to the elevated rail, as well as they ripped up the rest of the road.


Warehouses, and industry...The "Ideal Communist City" looks like a train wreck.. Hopefully next time we come back to Astrein

the Communist Goverment, can make a neater appearance to show the public. They don't need their reputation to be ruined

anymore then it already was.. :no:


Communism looks so much like a party, unless your not really in the party.
