La Nation Belge

Rather strange to find a copy of the December 9,  1921 issue of this newspaper, La Nation Belge, glued to the wall in a street of Marseille.  The occasion portrayed is King's Albert visit to the Automobile Fair in the Cinquantenaire in Brussels.  The paper was created in 1918, its publication was interrupted during the second World War, and it disappeared at the end of  the 1950's.

  4. Hoop inderdaad dat het een copie is, vreemd om het zo op straat te hangen.
