Some excellent work there; I like the overlays and the location and angles are very accurate!

One nitpick though; the location of the famous movie footage with the men stepping from the LCA is not correct in my opinion. I remember taking the then and now pick some years ago and at least one of the original buildings is still standing. Either it has been replaced by a new house in the meantime, or the location on the website is not fully correct (writer already mentions he is not sure about location by the way)

Default Nan Red - La Rive

The actual site where the famous cine film footage of the North Shore (New Brunswick) Regiment assaulting Nan Red at La Rive has been well documented. Onthispot website is very good and could best be summed up as a digital version of the long-running After the Battle (ATB) series of magazines and books which have been in print since the early 1970s. ATB identified the exact La Rive location in its first magazine edition in 1973 and a subsequent book a few years latter.

I always get a chuckle when scholars and enthusiasts make a claim to having located this mystery site when it has been common knowledge for several decades.
