House with apartments and a pub, Nieuwe Schoolstraat.

Built late 19th century it served for a long time as a workshop.

It has been revised several times as you can tell from the brickwork in the walls.

0837 Nieuwe Schoolstraat

The pub it contains today, Café De La Gare, happens to be one of my favourite haunts.

0838 Nieuwe Schoolstraat

In spite of the pub’s name there is no station of any kind in the vicinity, although there are many old coach houses nearby in Kazernestraat.

Nieuwe Schoolstraat (New School Street) itself was built around 1860 along a big army barracks.

0841 Nieuwe Schoolstraat

0842 Nieuwe Schoolstraat

A school was built there as well (hence the name of the street), which has been demolished later.

Most pictures here were taken in March last year when the square in front of the pub was refurbished.
