83.Photograph. '3 March 45. 5/MM-45-3773. Fifth Army, Viareggio Area, Italy. Showing an anti-tank Teller mine exploding. Members of the 317th Combat Engineers, 92nd Div. [Division] are clearing this area of mines, which is near the pre-war summer resort at Viareggio. This resort will be conditioned for an Army rest camp. Neutralizing the mines is risky since the enemy often plants 'bobby-traps' on the mine. Photo by Spirito. 196th Signal Photo Co.' Viareggio Area, Italy. 3 March 1945
