    This photo by Keith and the following on page 3 are taken at the eastern end of the sea promenade at De Panne. Right on the horizon we see the last buildings at De Panne along the sea promenade, in the distance, left on the horizon we see St.-Idesbald and the still standing house 'Mieke Hill', standing isolated on a dunetop

    This photo by Keith was taken at 'Ankerweg' (= streetname) at De Panne. Google streetview doesn't alow you to have a clear view, but as I live in De Panne I recognized the second building from the right immediately. The building is still standing today.
