Hi Mark- What is the web address for "LAC-PA" and did it give any indication of where this photo was taken?

Cheers Phil

Hi Phil;

In answer to your first question, the web address for Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is located here

In answer to your second question, the location of where the photo was taken is Nijmegen (11 August 1945)

Hi Les;

In the link that wim provided, use search terms such as Canadian Army or Normandy or Germany, etc.

The link I provided in my earlier reply to Phil was for the main or home page of the Library and Archives Canada website.

Cheers
