The Cloth Hall (or Lakenhal in Dutch) in Ypres Belgium was a warehouse for the prosperous cloth industry during the Middle Ages. These days, it is the home of the In Flanders Fields WWI Museum.
I decided to create a Forgotten Postcard of this building because many of the real postcards of Ypres past reflect the devastation of WWI. I wanted to focus on the beauty of the architecture and the new-found vibrance and resilience of this lovely Flemish city. I hope you like it.
