1966; Belgium Street Scene

    Newer Older

    1966 - trams, billboards and fewer cars than now. I am not sure where this is, perhaps Ghent/Gand or Ostend (if someone knows, please say).

      I'm not exactly sure, but I think it's Ghent

      I think you are right and that this shot is looking west towards the Korenmarkt and the canal; with St Niklaaskerk just on the righth behind the (wooden!) scaffolding.

      Well, in this particular case there are less cars now, since this street is semi-pedestrian area now (only local residents ans some delivery vehicles are allowed here). The tram is still running though, but it has becomen more modern now.

      It's Ghent =)
      And as said, there are less cars in this spot today than back in 1966 (not that I was already born then). The bilboards are gone too... you can actually see the church that's behind it now.

      Found in a search. (?)
