As comparison with the original photo of the question:

(source: tagesspiegel.de)

  • Schloß Charlottenburg (Berlin) after the bombing during the night of the 22/23rd of November 1943

The dark colors of the building was caused by coal dust, since in that area coal was the main form of heating until the late 1970's.
