The next postcard in the album shows the Casino Kursaal in Ostende, by night.
I found this wiki page saying that in 1940 the building was destroyed in the War, so this postcard would appear to date from the 1930s and show the earlier building, which doesn't look at all like the pictures on the wiki page for the current Casino.


  1. Oh wow, how cool is that? You would have thought when they rebuilt they would try to keep some of the same personality as the original.

  2. The Germans demolished the building to make way for bunkers with a view at sea... I've never visited Oostende, I've heard it has lost much of his glamour.
