One year ago I was photo hunting in Kortrijk a city 15 km of the French borders
The bridge was very busy with different people, looking to the seller with sun parabola, see my previous picture, one year ago.
This is a Flemish city, Dutch is the language, but much people speak also French.

The Lys Bridge is a bridge in the centre of the Belgian city of Kortrijk. The bridge spans the River Lys and connects the Leiestraat with Budastraat. The Lys Bridge is a place where for centuries been a bridge provides the connection between the Market and the districts Buda and Lys.
Have already been several other bridges at the site of this bridge. Both Lys bridge was blown up during World War I and during World War II. Just beside the Lys Bridge was originally located on either side buildings that came directly along the back of the Lys. Along the western side of the building was demolished in the late 19th century to make way for the Dolphin Quay (which was named after an inn in that place). Along the eastern side was long famed property in the Lys Bridge. By inflating the Lys Bridge during World War II historic building was heavily damaged and eventually not rebuilt. This allows the Lys Bridge is now on both sides no longer surrounded by buildings
