It seems that Russian photographers were fond of splitting a scene over two photographic frames. A number of our images, obtained from Russian sources are like this. A case in point is the scene depicting the thoroughly wrecked Hummel in Brieg (now Brzeg in Poland). We published what is in effect the right hand photo, as it had all the interesting stuff in it. Below is the companion shot showing the front end and detritus down the road. The crew obviously applied their winter whitewash while the gun was in the travel lock.
Chernivtsi railway station looks much the same today as it did in 1944 when photographed by a Russian Army photographer.
