Title:
Jepson Field Book volume 13 page 22
Description:
Liege, Belgium [August 1, 1905]  steep that it seems as if one might fall off looking down over it as a whole.  All the "places" and "boulevards" have trees. In the small crowded places, where a great many people pass, the pavement does not extend close to the tree. There is an area of ground, say 6 to 8 feet diam. But this prevented from packing by a sort of gridiron arrangement, which can be taken up when desired. Young trees are protected up as high as 4 1/2 feet on their trunks by wheat straw bound close by a galvanized wire around the tree or rather trunk ::::::::: [Liege, Belgium] August 1, 1902 [Note-author probably meant 1905]  The trees mean a great deal to a people who love to sit and eat and drink in the open air as much as do the Belgians. I have a room in a "hole in wall" right in the Place du Theatre, the very heart and center of the town. Opposite is a Restaurant Venetian where hundreds of people are dining in the open air of an evening. Music is played by a band. Sousa's marches, Hiawatha, and classical pieces follow one another. The band which played at the dinner of the International Congress for Agricultural Education played among other things: "Just one Girl" and "Rosa O'Grady."
