This application is one of my first approaches to create a functional server-side application and it was created without the aid of any framework. The original version of the application is installed in Ship Pictures website. Another website available is WW2 Color Photos which contains a collection of photos, artwork and modellism about such relevant period of History. You can refer to Privacy Policy for more details about the application before using it.
