The interbellum: 1935 – 2 (monuments and memorials)

Some of the the pictures included in this post remember us of people who either lived in Brussels or had some connections with the city or the Brussels’ Region.

The memorial to Fernando Pessoa is located close to Place Flagey in Ixelles, an area known by the many Portuguese cafés and restaurants. Queen Astrid of Belgium appears prominently in this post. She died in 1935. Three pictures are of a memorial close to the Royal Palace in Laeken. The fourth one is of a memorial in Kraainem, a Flemish municipality bordering the Brussels Region. I have also added a picture of a memorial to Queen Astrid in Ixelles.

Then there is a picture displaying the year 1935 at “Palais 5” of the Heysel Plateau . This exhibition hall was built for the Brussels International Exposition of 1935.

I also made a picture of a plaque of a school built in 1935 in the Rue des Capucins, a side the very popular “Rue Haute” and “Rue Blaes”. Finally there is also a picture of the plaque indicating the year of completion of the Hôpital Saint Pierre in Brussels. This building was designed by architect Dewin.

The interbellum: 1935 – 1 (architects signatures)

In view of the many pictures I had on store for this year I decided to write two posts: one with architect’s signatures and another one with memorials and monuments displaying the year 1935.

Some of the signatures included in this post are particularly interesting, especially because of the calligraphy.
