"Normandy 1944 – Then and Now"
AS IT WAS OVER SEVENTY YEARS AGO AND AS IT IS NOW!! BEFORE AND AFTER!!
Thanks in all instances to allpics4u.
These two particular images most evocative.
"SAINT AUBIN SUR MER Juno Beach, Nan Red sector. A P-47 crash landed on the beach near the strong point WN27. (Photo : I.W.M)"
Oui , nous nous souvenons. That is the Canadian and French flag flying alongside one another, Juno beach.
NOT only do we remember, we should remember.
Indeed there is an English magazine quarterly publication that deals with such matter, HOW it was then, HOW it is NOW. "After the Battle":
"For over 35 years, After the Battle has been presenting the history of the world's conflicts through 'then and now' comparison photographs. From the Zulu wars, through the First and Second World Wars; to the Falklands, all are researched on the actual battlefield to show how they appear today."
