Site of "Sham Paris"
By skyeye @ 2011-09-26 08:10:08
During The Great War (WWI), the French began construction of a false city resembling Paris, complete with railways, lights, and buildings. The aim was to distract German bombers from the real Paris. Sham Paris was only partially constructed before war’s end in November 1918. No traces remain from the air.
