Great pictures!!

I find it interesting that they would build all those bars and shops into and on top of the Mortar Battery rather than demolish it and start from scratch.

Many thanks but according to the notation on the upper left corner of that map, that information dates from 1934, not from Dec. 1941 ... unless the AA defenses hadn`t changed at all in the 7 years in between ...
