Crossing Paths with Paras
World Wide Press photo, dated September 22, 1944

U.S. paratroopers march over a railroad crossing near the Maastricht, Holland railway station as Dutch civilians watch. Note the Ford Motors and Lincoln advertising signs on the side of the building in the background. Operation Market-Garden was in full swing when this photo was taken, the initial landings having taken place on September 17.
