    Well, a quick search shows, that Gerard Florizoone was a son of Odila Maria (nee Florizoone) (1901-1985) and thus, a grandson of Theophil Isidorus Florizoone (1866-1943), who built the new mill/plant in Dijk at Wulpen. The Gerard'r father - Julien Hector Florizoone (1893-1956) and his parents lived in Wulpen too.
    So, Dijk at Wulpen is a very good guess to start with, and here Rich is right.

    Just some steps (to the North-East along the street) from the place pointed out by Rich. Mark the bridge name!

  4. Morrisc8 amazing range of vehicles on the beach, thank you for shareing.

    Does anyone know that the white round motiff is on a couple of the vehicles? Are some French or Belgium vehicles? Interesting to see vans as well as lorries and cars in the mix.

    Might that particular track with "A.FINET & FILS" logo be Belgian? There was an enterprise named "Finet & Fils" in Charleroi (Belgium).

    Same area, you can just see the same truck and looks like it`s been moved a few times.

    Well, something like this:
    5727/ Сhaos on the Dunkirk seashore.
    The chaos on the seashore of Dunkirk. On wild
    fleeing the English left everythig in trouble
    and attempted to run farther.
