Grande Place Postcard

The back of the postcard reads:

Bruxelles - Brussel
Grande Place
Grote Markt

Unfortunately the postcard also did not include the name of the artist. The Grote Markt (Dutch) or Grand Place (French) is the central market square of Brussels. It is surrounded by guild houses, the city's Town Hall and the Bread House (Dutch: Broodhuis, French: Maison du Roi).
