Ruins of church in Bapaume
The church is framed by a hole in the brick wall through which the photograph is taken. The church itself still remains fairly intact although the roof has been blown off and the buildings round the back are falling down.
A lot of French architecture and land was devastated by prolonged warfare as scenes like this typify. It took many years for the re-building to be completed.
