Hey... good photo, but I think that you are wrong. This is Gold Beach not Utah!!! Please edit the info. Thanks

Good change ! The remnants are those of the "allied artificial port", not only american !(it is in the british zone)

This is one of two British built and designed "Mulberry Harbour" it is in the British Sector at Arromanches. The one in the American sector was destroyed by a storm on on night of 18/19 Jun 44.

Yeah, contrary to popular American belief. We Brits did contribute to d-day! :O

And like the others have said above me, this is also Gold beach and not Utah.

The photo title as clicked from the picture incorrectly refers to the floating harbor as American.

Information in Google Earth take some time to be updated, in respect to those viewable in Panoramio.
