While organizing stuff for our upcoming move, I took a bit of time to scan and title ten more images from this exciting batch. These include a pair of pastoral shots of a thatched-roof cottage in Genk and a beautiful color shot of some Genk marshland. I wonder what these areas look like now…

There are also several images from a traditional procession in Kortrijk / Courtrai from 1960. These historic festivals are common all over Belgium and each town has their own special customs. The big one in our village of Mons is called the Doudou and dates from the 1300s! These images from Kortrijk depict several festivities around an event occurring on 5/29/1960.

There are several more from this mysterious event and one from Montaigu as well.

Here’s a really nice one showing an artist painting in a Kortrijk courtyard. I wish I could see the painting…

There’s also one nice shot from the Grand Place in Brussels, this goes along with some of the earlier shots I scanned from this lot.

There are more than 100 in this Belgian Heritage Batch so I’ll be scanning them and adding more in the coming months. All are 6×6 color transparencies which are not so common for this period.

Thanks for looking! ~ Lance
