Jepson Field Book volume 13 page 28
Brussels [August 2, 1905]  occasional plantations of broad-leaved trees and conifers, each consisting of 1 to 10 acres. The young conifers were so neat that they resembled young vegetable patches. Even in the country districts, through way-out places in the fields the roadways are often paved.  Brussels is a fine city. Its Palace of Justice, said by Bodaeker to be the greatest piece of architecture of the 19th century, its cathedral but especially its Market Place render it of interest not to speak of the Picture Galleries of Old and Modern Masters. I liked especially the Market Place with its ::::::::: [Brussels] August 2, 1905  fine Hotel de Ville, the ancient "Palace of the King" and the guild houses. The latter interested me exceedingly -the Halls of the Mercers, Skippers, Carpenters, Archers, Printers, etc. They are more elaborate than those of Antwerp but I like the latter very much better. The assemblages of buildings at the Grand Place is the most interesting collection of mediaeval buildings in one square anywhere in Europe possibly. At least so thinks Prof. Smith of the University of Illinois who is traveling with one for a few days. People dress rather better here than in Liege but men's drewss seems to me very informal
