Oh what fun it is to read the old script! For a moment I thought it was advertising that “millionaires” would be in attendance, but then I looked more closely and realized it was just “Missionare”–missionaries.
It shouldn’t surprise anybody that there is not an auditorium at Elisabethstrasse 57. It is a bit more surprising that there is no street named Elisabethstrasse, but even more surprising that there is no longer a street that follows the course that Elisabethstrasse did in 1927.
I found a wonderful website with historical maps of Berlin, which shows that Elisabethstrasse was still there in 1961–the year the Berlin Wall was built. By 1989, it was gone. I guess we know who’s responsible for that street’s disappearance.
