THE REBUILDING OF YPRES AFTER ITS TOTAL DESTRUCTION IN WW1 - CANCELLED Christopher Chanter Monday 06 April 2020

UPDATE - As of Sunday 15 March the Committee has decided to cancel this Lecture due to the rapid spread of the Coronavirus.  The Lecture will be rescheduled at a later ....

Wonderful photographs of the architecture of Ypres taken before the Great War and images of the same buildings after destruction show the scale of devastation this town suffered.  Many important buildings were carefully reconstructed, including the Gothic-style cathedral and its soaring spire.
