Was it the site of a natural disaster?

A human-caused disaster?

A non-disaster related event?

No disaster.

So, what used to happen there, hasn't happened for a long time.

You pointed out something about the bridge earlier. Is the bridge an important clue, or was that just incidental?

Incidental. I just used the bridge to point our real world scale. BTW, I checked out some other pics, and it was actually a 2 lane bridge at the time. Now it is 4 lane. It is a draw bridge, as an aside. That is why the rise from street level.

This one is driving me nuts! But I am determined to figure it out. I'm sure that just as I am typing it in, someone will sneak in with it!

Did the thing that happened here only happen here? Did it happen once or many times?

OK, it's been up for 4 days. I thought someone would have gotten it easily. As that hasn't been the case, here is a pic of the surface of what you are looking at:

I'm more confused than ever now! It looks like some kind of artificial surface is being built up around the houses. Does it have something to do with WWII?
