The bridge on the Ullsteinhaus in Tempelhof is restored jointly by American pioneers and German workers. Often, the demolition is the prerequisite for the reconstruction. Traffic and life-threatening debris must be removed. Also, women are her husband!
This demolition of the famous House of passage between Möckernbrücke and bülowstraße had to be used in special precision, preserve the plants of the elevated railway.
A further explosion in Berlin - This time it's a whole city block at the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Platz in Schöneberg.
In many cities, you can see new procedures for the recovery of debris.
This machine works in Hamburg. It creates with the conveyor belt to the funnel debris and stones. A further operation turns the waste into useful building material, in particular concrete.
As everywhere, the cleaning-up operations are in full swing in Wuppertal.
The same image in Cologne.
Jackhammers and gripper are at work to boiler-room streets and squares.
Düsseldorf even the tram for the clean-up work has made mobile. So it - goes forward slowly but steadily in many cities - - and every stone that is, given any gap that joins, making their presence felt in the great plan of reconstruction.
The reconstruction of Bamberg is nearly complete. The war damage that had sustained the city, were not too difficult. They are already largely eliminated by energetic grab. A walk through the picturesque old town offers the image preserved beauty and created order.

01. Germany (U.S.Zone):
40 Towns Go To The Polls
In the American Zone of Occupation 40 towns with more than 20.000 inhabitants elected their new aldermen.
Here, in Frankfurt/a. Main the rainy Sunday could not detain the population from casting their vote.
A former concentration camp prisoner is carried to the polling-place.
In Munich, too, voting is brisk.
Everywhere the average participation is over 80 per cent.
The Bavarian Prime-Minister Dr. Högner casts his vote in Munich-Harlaching.
The hospitals - as for instance, here in Bayreuth - have their own voting stations - often under makeshift conditions. A curtain sometimes has to serve as a polling booth.
After the poll - the voting-papers are sorted and counted. The local polling-stations transmit the results to the collecting centres, where already during the night the result for each town is determined.
The Christian-Social-Union gained the majority of votes in front of the Social-Democrats, Communists and Liberal-Democrats following at a distance.
02. Aerial Transports New York - Berlin Resumed
On Tempelhof airfield arrives the first passenger plane from America, the four motored "Flagship Amsterdam".
It covered the 3.900 miles distance in 23 hrs and 15 min. at an average speed of 222 m.p.h.
Intermediate landings were made in Newfoundland, Irland, Amsterdam and Frankfurt/o. Main.
The plane has a crew of 7 and can carry 34 passengers. The first complement consisted mostly of journalists. The stewardess displays the latest New York magazine. From now on once a week a plane will arrive from New York in Berlin and one will take off from Tempelhof to New York.
Berlin is back again in the international air transport service.
Alster relay race 1946
In Hamburg 45 club teams compete in this years traditional "Alster race".
At each relay there are new spurts for the lead. The last change-over.
The first team of the Hamburg Sporting Club wins easily. Major Petersen presents the prize.
Our camera-review of the present state of reconstruction starts in Berlin:
Of 225 large traffic bridges in Berlin 150 were destroyed by bombs and street fighting. At present 40 of these bridges are being reconditioned.
American engineers and German workers are co-operating on the bridge near the Ullstein-House in Tempelhof. Frequently, demolition is the first stage of reconstruction.
Dangerous ruins have to be removed to give way for building sites. In this work women take their full share.
The detonating charge is fixed.
This blasting of the well known passage-house between Möekernbridge and Bulow-Street had to be planned with special precision in order to preserve the overhead railway.
Another blasting in Berlin - a whole block near the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Place in Schöneberg.
New ways of using the rubble for reconstruction were discovered in Wuppertal. This machine transports rubble and stones to the funnel. Another process creates new building material - especially concrete.
This is how Hamburg cleans up. Dredging machines are busy everywhere to clear streets and squares. Cologne even mobilised the street cars to help with the job. Thus conditions are improving slowly but steadily in many towns - and every stone which is cleared away, every hole, which is closed is another step forward in the great task of reconstruction.
Bamberg has almost finished the job. The not too serious damages were repaired with vigour and dispatch. A round trip of the picturesque old town conveys a picture of old beauty and new order.
The streets are clean, trade and traffic are reviving and Old-Bamberg's charm with her odd little streets and corners and waterways remains unbroken as of yore.
Princess Elizabeth christens tanker
In Wearside Princess Elizabeth of England christens a 12.000 ton oil-tanker to the name "British Princess".
The British tanker fleet which suffered heavy war losses is now gradually being built up to her former strength.
The "British Princess" is one of the largest and most modern tankers a float.
Steel-helmets turned into household goods
The Fulda Enamel Works manufacture useful sieves out of obsolete steel-helmets.
First the helmets are formed and the brims removed.
Finally the holes are stamped in and the sieve is enameld.
Thousand of steel-helmets are processed in this factory; in addition other household goods in short supply are manufactured such as pots, pans and dishes for bombed-out people and refugees.
The severest war-damages have been repaired and 500 workers are again re-employed here.
07. News flashes from everywhere:
a. Air Freight By Parachute
Who lives in America on an isolated farm - far removed from railway station and high-way - can now order his necessities per air freight and the goods are delivered by parachute.
American pilots who fought in Burma and China operate the new air service.
The first freight for lonely prairie-dwellers consisted of food and household goods. (Glass and chinaware were not included.)
b. Archery contest
The Archer's Club in France recently staged a contest.
Age, sex or weight do not matter. What does matter is to hit the bulls eye.
A young lady succeeded in doing this more frequently than the others - a Diana of the 20. century.
Since 1875 America's most famous horseracing event is held in the state of Kentucky: the Kentucky-Derby.
A hundred thousand [...]spectators fill the stands to see the 17 thoroughbreds go over the one and a quarter mile track.
They're off ... with the favorite, Lord Boswell, trying to get to the front.
But during the race the lead changes - and finally Assault gains more and more ground.
Assault crosses the finish line to win easily by eight lenghts.
Three little bears ...
It is their first time out of their cave in Chicago Zoo and one of them gets taken for a ride.
First he sits on Mama's pillion-seat. Then he changes over.
What climbs up can always climb down - or can it?
Mama says: never mind, the kids have got to find out for themselves.
