Normandy 1944 2008
#1

I wanted to put photos of Normandy in 1944 and photos of 2008 I took .

Then I'll start with two photos of St Mére L'église in 1944 (from the book of G. Bernage "Utah Beach, Ste Mére L'église" published Heimdal) Note that in 2008 the building in front of the soldier who aims at the bell-tower disappeared.

Neat stuff; thanks for posting. I always love to see the then and now photos. As a matter of fact I was looking at Frank G's website this morning: http://www.12-09-1944.nl/nowandthen.php
