The 19th century in Brussels: 1870

This year is rich in events, at least in Europe. In 1870 the Franco-Prussian war begins. This war led to a build up of the military in Belgium. An example of such build-up was the construction of the “Fort d’Evegnée”, nearby Liège.

My post includes a picture I took from a house built by architec G. Maréchal.
