|Original caption:||Memorial. The "Marble Arch," on the border between Libya and Tripolitania, built under Mussolini, and now a gravestone of the Italian Empire.|
|Yank Archive curator's comments:|
Muammar Gaddafi tore down the arch c. 1970. This page discusses the history of the arch, but it is in French. (Use this page to see it in English). The graffito on the right appears to be "Xmas 1942."
