BRUXELLES. Part Sociale. red, green, black. #2260. No 667. Damaged right border, not least the bottom corner. Cancellation-holes. Formed 1911 to create a panorama of the battle of Waterloo, on land at the foot of the Butte du Lion. Photo vignette of the Butte, and the Panorama building beside it. The panorama still exists today, in the same building. It shows, in a modernised form, much the same picture of the battle that visitors enjoyed 92 years ago. The mound with the lion is on the exact spot where the British army under Wellington, with the Prussians under Blücher, finally killed off Napoleon's ambitions, in 1815. First time we can offer this share as issued.
