The summit of the Gross Glockner Pass in Austria

As can be seen in the background the roadway is cantilevered out from the rock face as it snakes around the very top of the pass. A sensational construction achievement in the 1930s. This photograph of Tony was taken when he was driving through Austria en route for Yugoslavia in 1966.

The construction of which cost the lives of many of the workers who are commemorated in a memorial near the summit. We drove over the pass in a 1950s Austin A35 Van on our way to Yugoslavia.
