History in time - Belle Époque in Belgium

This weekend I made the Belle Époque walk in Blankenberge (Belgium).
Of course I wanted to know something more about that era.

We did the tour on Sunday & the Belle Époque Center was closed.

The Belle Époque took place in Belgium and in France from 1871 till
the start of World War I.

During this period, the middle class had more and more prosperity and
tourism was booming...

Due to the tourism a lot of beautiful houses were built.

As you can see on the picture the House(s) were called Prince Albert
and Princess Elisabeth, later King (1909-1934) and Queen of Belgium.
