“The Guild Hall of the Cloth Merchants (begun 1201, completed 1304), was the chief edifice of the sort in Belgium and one of the finest examples of secular Gothic architecture in Europe. The façade measured 460 feet and had two ranges of painted windows. At each end rose a turret and in the middle the massive belfry. The view shows the condition of the building in August, 1915. It is now a shapeless ruin."—Webster, 1920
