Liberation Day 55 years ago

Back in time. 55 years ago Liberation Day was celebrated with a military parade on the Alexanderveld, the drillground of the Alexanderkazerne (Alexander barracks) that is seen at the background of this picture. And way behind that the dome of the graveyard on Kerkhoflaan.

When the barracks were pulled down, the apartment buildings on Burgemeester Patijnlaan were built and the bigger part of Alexanderveld is now Burgemeester Monchyplein.
