Hello,

In Polish archive there is a picture described as "antitank obstacle in the Italian front".
I have 3 questions:
- doeas anyone have the idea about type of the obstacle? It seems it's a rectangular block with one wall sloping.
- Has anyone noticed similar obstacles in other locations? E.g. similar ones were used in Krakow in Poland.
- does anyone recognize the location?
The place could be "Bogliasco", near Genoa, Italy. The bridge is still exists. Certainly, during the Second World War, some "Dragon's Teeth" (anti tank obstacles) were built under that bridge. These are the coordinates 44.37816758434837, 9.068250150319196. Anothere important thing: at the right side of the bridge of Bogliasco is still existing an anti landing and anti tank wall. Herring please, can you post the link to that photo?

Hello Dragons Hunter,

Looks very probable!
Here is the link: https://audiovis.nac.gov.pl/obraz/2110/ ... 75e26ea03/ , but it won't say a lot - it a collection of mixed pictures from different places.
Did you notice a similar antitank obstacle in any place nearby?

Here they are. Same type of the ones in your photo. A standard Type in Genoa, expecially built to protect rivers and beaches

...and here examples from Krakow. Could it be the same design? Or coincidence?

Hello Dragons Hunter,

And what about this picture? The palace on the top - could it be 44°25'43.0"N 8°44'35.8"E in Genova? In the internet a picture is described as Crete, but maybe it's wrong?
