Bombing of the Torviscosa railway bridge



Bombing of the Torviscosa railway bridge


On a clear winter’s day, a bridge on a railway line has been bombed. There is a village nearby where the telegraph poles have come down. In the foreground, a branch of the canal forks off to the left and a boat is moored at the side. Two aircraft are swooping over the site of the explosion and the aircraft descending is releasing two more bombs. In the distance, five other aircraft are visible.

Label reads “216”; signed by the author; caption reads “25 GENNAIO 1945. Caccia anglo-americani attaccano con bombe la ferrovia interronpendola. TORVISCOSA UD.”
