White building in the right foreground is the upper part of the grain elevator in southern Stalingrad. An inclined conveyor belt had led from the elevator down to the river; some of it can be seen here.

The Modern Day Location map mistakenly identifies a building about 2 km southwest of this photographed area (south of the grain elevator). The industrial building seen here in 4 ruined segments is near the street labeled "ul. Konservnaya-1-ya" (near where the curved Don-Volga rail line was). Zoom in: it is numbered "5".
