1943 Photo of Jeeps in Sicily on ebay

I figured at the very least that the church still existed. So, I made some guesses and determined where I think the photo at the bottom was taken.

The church is in the town of Gela, Italy. The church still looks about the same, but the building to the left has seen some changes.

    I think the building on the left is not the one in the original photo. In the original photo, that building would be directly across the street from the church. It was probably about where that tent is in the new photo. Still cool to see the comparison.
