Indeed. The tunnel and the escalator are built between 1931 and 1933 and are protected monuments.

That's not surprising, one must feel shameful to use this escalator with muddy shoes

Thank you Jane. Almost finished this serial of pictures. Should go back to capture other parts of Antwerp, but no time for that for the moment.

Thanks, you really made nice pictures of the nicest areas from all around Antwerp!

Do you have any pictures of Lillo, the Total-Fina refinary with flames coming out of it and that small residential neighbourhood stuck inbetween?
It may not be beautiful, but I certainly found it fascinating and surrealistic when I visited it.

I know what you mean. It's quite impressive, especially at night. But I don't have any pictures of it. Sorry.
