Ypres and the Menin Gate
Daily Sketch Saturday 23rd July 1927


"Wipers" as British Soldiers knew it, and Ypres The Menin Gate Pilgrims will see it to-morrow

The Cloth Hall at Ypres in its pre-war glory - a magnificent example of medieval architecture

      Mr. Ernest Raymond                                    Earl of Upres                    Mme. Coene of Vlamertinghe

On the way to "Hell-Fire Corner" - It is difficult to realise that these are photographs of the same spot - in war-time and to-day.  The ground churned up by shell fire is now a fine, straight road with newly built houses on the left and shell-wrecked ruins on the right.  Contrasts like this, of modern buildings on one side and war wreckage on the other, abound in new Ypres

"Hell-Fire Corner" - Above, during the war, looking towards the German lines; below, photographed yesterday.  The stone in the foreground marks the spot where the Germans were stopped

The Lille Gate - A pictorial contrast between its aspect nine years ago and to-day.  The arch has been rebuilt and the approach is a well-made road

A war-time reminiscence of Field-Marshall Lord Plumer, who opens the Menin Memorial Gate to-morrow. This photograph was taken neat Ypres when watching a mine explosion
The lion that surmounts the new Menin Gate, watching over the Ypres Salient

From war to peace.  Harvesting yesterday on a battlefield of yester-year.  A scene in the neighbourhood of Sanctuary Wood, looking towards the position of the German lines

The Rue De Lille - Another pictorial contrast between the Ypres of war-time and Ypres to-day.  Handsome new buildings replace the war shattered street.  The "Wipers" of war-time is steadily giving place to a city of prosperous appearance

The Memorial Gate - A striking side view of the massive structure to be opened to-morrow, showing the war-scarred ramparts of old Ypres that merge into the architecture of the new building
