Champ de Foire looking towards Rue Emile Desourteaux
Looking across the Champ de Foire (Fairground) towards the Rue Emile Desourteaux. The car of Doctor Desourteaux is visible just to the right of the big tree. Many of the trees in the village were there before 1944 and naturally they have grown in the 54 years since then (picture taken in 1998). This makes it a little difficult to imagine just what the place looked like on the 10th of June 1944. The cemetery is to the rear and right of the photographer and the Laudy barn where about 60 men were killed is to the rear and left.
