The Cloth Hall

During the First World War, the Belgian town of Ypres was almost completely destroyed, including the medieval Cloth Hall.  The centre of the town was rebuilt after the war to the same design, as near as possible, using old paintings and photographs.  This is the rebuilt Cloth Hall in all its 20th century medieval magnificence - although my photograph is not of the highest quality.
