Round Brussels in 10 Minutes (1908)

Round Brussels in 10 Minutes

Brussels in the Belle Epoque, recorced on film in a straightforward way.

Camera work and editing are purely functional. The film observes busy everyday life in the metropolis as it happens on the street (including Boulevard Anspach, Rue de la Loi, Boulevard Emile Jacqmain), in the parks (Brussels Park and Parc du Cinquantenaire) and on the markets (including Grand Place). The iconic buildings feature extensively, buildings such as the Bourse, the Law Courts, St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral, Brussels’ City Hall and the Parliament. After the tram ride through the Foret de Soignes to the Congo Museum in Tervuren, the film ends with panoramic images of the city.
