Ypres, Ruines
"Ruines d'Ypres - Les Remparts."
Another of those cities in Belgium and Northern France which were almost totally destroyed during the

with the damage caused.  We have recently obtained quite a few "before and after" postcards and we
hope to come across more not so intimately connected with the War !
