This year was rich in discoveries.
The reader will notice that I found some interesting items to capture with my camera.
One picture is about the memorial of Leon Delcroix, a Belgian composer who lived in Brussels. I also took a picture of a statue of the Virgin Mary with the year 1938 displayed in the pedestal. This statue is located at the entrance of a school nearby the Sainte Suzanne chuch (see my post on 1932).
The year 1936 seems an easy one when it comes to finding buildings architects signatures displaying that year.
Similarly to 1933 it was easy to find houses built on that year or plaques and memorials displaying that year.
The first picture displays the year 1934 and the name of J.B. Dewin with the words “arch.” (architect) and “bouwm.” (bouwmeester), which is the dutch word for architect. We have thus here a bilingual architect signature. I also found interesting the fact that after the year 1934 a dot has been placed. This signature can be seen on the façade of the town hall of the Brussels municipality of Forest / Vorst. Here is a link to Wikipedia with a nice picture of this building
This is a follow-up to my previous post on 1932? which included pictures of the church of Saint Jean-Baptiste in Molenbeek.
This post displays pictures of architects signatures, some of them famous ones (Dewin, De Lestré, Van Meulecom). A picture with a building by Jasinski (with the corresponding signature) also appears in the post.
The reader will also notice the plaque (in French) mentioning 1932 as the year when construction of the church of Sainte Suzanne in Schaarbeek (see picture) was completed. Interesting to note is that this is one of the three Brussels churches built in concrete, the two others are Saint Jean Baptiste in Molenbeek (see my post on 1932) and Saint Augustin in Forest.
There is also a picture depicting the year 1932. It is from the façade of a school in Saint-Gilles.
Worthwhile mentioning also is the signature of architect Troffaers
