I received this real vintage card of Bruges from Nicole. She writes : "The card is showing the Belfort which was very important for the city because it gave the city " city rights". Many tourists visit this city every year."
The belfry is one of the city's most prominent symbols, it formerly housed a treasury and the municipal archives, and served as an observation post for spotting fires and other danger.
