Past & Present in Flanders

Along the same lines as the 'Past & present in NW London' thread I started, here are a few pics showing how various areas in Flanders, Belgium have changed over the years. I have tried, where possible, to take the pictures in the same places where the old ones were taken.

I'm of the opposite opinion. I think Waarschoot looked nicer in the past, it looked like it had more charm.

I think it's a mixture. The first two shots definitely show that it's improved these days from the past, however, other shots are a bit more of a mixed bag.

What a surprise. Photo's from Waarschoot, just around the corner. Are you a citizen of Waarschot, Tetramesh?
Anyway, nice thread. I think Waarschoot is not as beautiful as it was before. To much asphalt and concrete in the centre. But renovation is on the way, I read in the papers. Could become a nice place again.
But I like the countryside of Waarschoot. Het Leen, The Lieve and the Bellebargie forest are great places for a walk or a bicycle-trip.
And here are some of my pictures taken of the new church.

very interesting comparison.
I thought it would be nice if you can at least put a date or estimated date
on the old pictures. Most of the them though haven't changed which is great.

I started a similar thread to this one and was able to put dates next to many of the images, unfortunately for the old images in this thread I was not able to find out the dates and thought it better to state the date as unknown instead of estimating.

Yes, due to be completed by 2012 if I remember. I think the same company behind the rebuilding of the church are also carrying out this project so I'm not expecting great results. There needs to be more greenery and less concrete in Waarschoot.

cant agree with you anymore, today the building design and quality have deteriorated compared with the past, and the cheap cars makes the streets look so ugly
