The Cloth Hall of Ypres, Belgium - Pen & Ink Architectural Rendering.Inscription on the drawing reads:
First Battle of Ypres – Second Battle of Ypres – Battle of Passchendaele – Battle of Lys – Fifth Battle of Ypres
The Cloth Hall of Ypres, Belgium, was one of the largest commercial buildings of the Middle Ages, when it served as the main market and warehouse for the Flemish city's prosperous cloth industry. The original structure, erected mainly in the 13th century lay in ruins after artillery fire devastated Ypres in World War I. The importance of Ypres is reflected in the five major battles that occurred there during the Great War and are inscribed on this beautiful pen & ink drawing. Meticulously reconstructed from 1933-1967, it now serves as the home to the In Flanders Fields Museum.
