Westhoek Verbeeldt

"Westhoek Verbeeldt" is a large online databank with old postcards and photographs of places, events, people in the province of West Flanders. This database was created for the purpose of preserving those old images so they would not be lost ever again. Future generations, that way, still can consult this database and learn about the past, find out soemthing about the lives of their parents, grandparents and ancestors.
