Aerial photograph of the Kornwerderzand fortress and sluices - may 1940

Aerial photograph of the Kornwerderzand fortress and sluices on the Afsluitdijk. The picture is taken from west to east, and so the coast, that is just visible in the background, is the Friesland coast. Mind you that due to the angle of the photo ['en oblique'] distorted proportions in distances occur. Although the coast appears to be very close, in fact she was 4 km away.
