Alphen – Raadhuisstraat

A Sherman tank of the 10th Armoured Cavalry Brigade (1st Polish Armoured Division) passing through the Dutch village of Alphen on the way to Tilburg, late October 1944.
Fascination for me is the building on the right. It looks like a part of the building is removed/sliced off in comparison to the old image.
