WWI Postcards - Belgium

Note: You may have to reload the web pages several times to get all the images to load because of slow connection speed, servers "timing out" and assorted reasons. Or, just "right click" on them and select "Show Picture."


These Belgium postcards were found in a wall in Germany. They were given to Tralawney Valdez <valdezc@balista.com> as a gift while he was stationed there in 1985 by his German friend who had remodeled his home. They seem to be taken in Brussels, and there is at least one American dignitary in the picture, and maybe German officers. Can you help him identify these postcards?
