Thanks Sylvia, Benonie and Christos:)

17. Outremeuse, on the eastern bank of the Meuse, is probably the most Liègeois of all neighbourhoods. This is Rue des Récollets, one of Liège's many old streets, with the church of Saint-Nicolas, 2017-10-14

21. The part of Liège which changed the most in time I live in there is the area around Guillemins station. Here you can see the demolition of a 1970's tax office, with the new tour des finances (also a tax office) behind it. This is the first in a series where I will post a number of pictures to show how a place changed

23. Sadly, nice buildings in Liège (and in Belgium in general - some other places are worse) often get the short end of the stick, whether on purpose (demolition) or by accident (fire or collapse). This villa in Cointe is one of a number of buildings that was damaged or destroyed by fire in the eight years I lived in Liège.

I kinda liked the old Tax Office near the Guillemins station.
It's a pitty so much late 20th Century buildings are demolished lately...

What's the white building with the clock on the left? Looks rather interesting.

20. The Meuse river used to have various branches in Liège. Boulevard d'Avroy, originally an elegant boulevard with a park in the middle, follows the course of one of the biggest, 2016-05-18
