Overall area view showing Elisabeth and other facilities including the staff and workmen’s canteens. Just visible on the left is the General Office, the overhead railway from the bunkers swings to the right and not shown beyond the garage. On the far right edge is the Melting Shop.

A nice view of Elisabeth from the other side of the canal, the image taken from what was clearly a folded photograph, probably dating from the mid-late 1950’s judging by the car in the foreground.
