I just read an history book on Verdun published in 1942 that mentions that the boardwalk was made of asphalt so now we know what is was made of at that time so it was made before that date. My feeling is that it was asphalted a year or two shortly before namely 1940 or 1941 as I distinctly rremember it when is was made of wood . A member mentioned previously that it was transformed at the beginning of the 40s so he would be right. I had mentioned app. 1945. I will keep an eye out for the actual year of transformation.
