Bigger update: locations

Before the holidays, I wanted to expand the new part of the locations. Because my job was a little less demanding I also succeeded. So from now on you will find on the locations page:

I still have some more ideas to work out, but first it’s time for vacation!

 

Another small update

It seems to become a good month: again I managed to get a small update done. I wanted to do monthly updates, but it just ain’t possible (yet)!

This time I’ve updated the page with Commanders of Camp Beverlo since WW II:

  • New commander was added
  • Missing photos were added

In the mean time I’m trying to get the page of Beverlo Canal ready in the section Locations!

 

New section started: LOCATIONS

Before the vacation I’ve put a new section online: LOCATIONS

Momentarely only the Military Airfield is available (old postcards included), but also the following locations will follow:

  • the Royal Parc
  • the Canal
  • the Shooting Range
  • the Dunes

Postcard collection – New subjects

These as well were planned since long: to bring online some new subjects: (click on the card to go to the corresponding album)

Assembly:
The Inspection:
The Officers’ mess of the Cavalry:

By now 1062 cards are online. This isn’t everything out of my collection, which surely isn’t the biggest one (onfortunately 🙂 ) but it might be 1 of the most accessible!

Are you also looking for old post cards of Leopoldsburg – Camp Beverloo? Have a look at my shop on Delcampe.net.

 

 

Adaptation pages with postcard albums

Also the pages with postcards about the kiosk, Malakoff prison, Royal palace and Officers’ mess of the Infantry were redone. These are sjust some minor updates but they need some time.
Next updates will probably be the ones with postcards of streets…

Finally some updates

Finally found some time to attack the website. This time, however, I did not post new information, but I’m updating the pages of the old postcards. There were still a lot of albums from the old gallery and, to my surprise, I found some non-working links. So now I have modified the pages for:

  • Quarters Antwerpen
  • Building of the Military Intendant
  • Town Hall of Leopoldsburg
  • Icehouse
  • Karmel
  • Church OLV
  • Mill
  • Quarters Moorslede
  • Old Military Hospital
  • Old Military Bakery
  • Old Military Butchery
  • Old Military Slaughterhouse
  • Old Military Laundry
  • Paviljon of the Commander of the Engineers
  • Paviljon of the Place Commander
  • Old Postal Office
  • Railwaystation of Leopoldsburg
  • Villa Astrid
  • Water tower
  • Town Hall of Heppen

I hope to have some more time in the holiday months so I can make some new pages public.

One more decision: The page photos will no longer be updated. In 2018 the page will be removed. Only the photo albums about certain events will, one way or another, be retained.

I wish you already a very nice vacation,

Patrick

A small update

Unfortunately I just do not have the time to do a big update of the site… But I did put new postcards online. After the cavalry camp now the infantry camp has received a spot.

Mayors of Heppen

After visiting the Museum of Local History in Heppen I found some extra information to update the page of the mayors! So the website is a bit completer again  😆

Postcards on Sunday

Once more I’ve put extra postcards online and this time with subject: EXERCISES. Personaly I think this is a very nice series… You can find them under 07 Camp Beverloo

The Old Presbytery of Heppen

As I mentioned before I want to update the part about Heppen. A visit to the Historical Museum was part of it of course… Today I’ve put the place of that museum, the old presbytery, online. A link to the postcards that I poces was put too (even though I only have to at this moment).

In the meanwhile I’ve received a lot of information about the Station of Heppen. But I’ll need more time to process that…
