Caption: The two “then” pictures show the town of Clermont-en-Argonne before the war, in 1905, and during the war, in 1915. By the time of the Meuse-Argonne Offensive in late 1918 Clermont-en-Argonne was clearly several miles south of the front lines. Nevertheless, the damage to the city can be seen in the 1915 photo.
Location: The intersections of the D998 and D603–the main intersection in town. The two then photos can be viewed just outside the Mairie.
