The ruined Cloth Hall at Ypres, with British soldiers in a motor car in the foreground, 1918.

Photograph, World War One, Western Front (1914-1918), 1918.

The gradual destruction of Ypres during the war was epitomized by the ruined 13th century Cloth Hall, which also came to symbolize the effect of war upon western civilization. Since the war, the Cloth Hall has been meticulously rebuilt to its original form and it now houses the Flanders Fields Museum.

One of 193 British and Allied official photographs.
