In these days of lockdown I've finally had the time to trace the building in the background of this picture from page 3 of this thread.
I believe it to be the Hotel de ville in Amiens and so it must have been photographed on or shortly after 20th May 1940.
In modern pictures the small windows in the roof are missing and the railings were present until 1992.
If you search postcards pre WW2 all of the details are present.
Perhaps someone with better picture loading skills than I could add pictures for comparison.

From ebay.de today.
Described as camouflaged in Russia 1942.
You don't see many 1942 pictures and you never see them camouflaged this well.

and unfortunately I can't download it!
Search ebay.de 8.8cm Flak18 auf halbkette Bunkerflak. Hopefully you'll have better luck than me.

Hi Dave
I think that's the picture you are talking about.
It looka like there is a whole tree on top of the vehicle.

Regards
Armin
