This is an original 1950 black and white photogravure of the monastery and commune of Mont Saint-Michel which is situated on a rocky tidal island in the region of Normandy in northwestern France. As of 2006, there were only 41 permanent residents on this island. This island became the seat of the Saint-Michel monastery in the 8th century AD but was a strategic point with fortification since ancient times.

Normandy is the historical region corresponding to the former Duchy of Normandy in northern France. It lies along the English Channel and is traditionally divided into Upper and Lower Normandy. In World War II, the D-Day landings occurred along the Normandy beaches and that event began the lengthy Battle of Normandy which many believe was the turning point of that war.
