The new Canadian Polymer Series twenty dollar bills show a picture of the top portion of these twin towers of the Vimy Memorial. The dollar bill picture was taken from a location on the far side of the towers.

The Menin Gate was built as a monument to the civilians and soldiers of many different nations that were injured and killed in and around Ypres during the First World War.

The name and location of the cemetery is engraved on a cement and brick wall.

Memorial wall.

My best guess based on some research is that the above picture is taken of a memorial wall in the Canadian Military Cemetery near Beny-Sur-Mer and Reviers, France. I found pictures of very similar walls with the same engraved phrase "THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE" in other military cemeteries of the World Wars.
