Belgian Pavilion- Where is it now?

Recommended Posts

Randy, thanks for the updated photos, I talked about this last year.

“The Belgian Pavilion went (August 1941) to the Virginia Union University in Richmond VA and renamed the Belgian Friendship Building. This building I have located and the University is raising money to replace the carillon that went to California”.

The photographer on flickr.com noted that the tiles are the original World's Fair terra cotta tiles, and where they've cracked and fallen out, the grout around them has largely remained intact.

In a couple of photos it looks like some broken tiles have been replaced, but the color doesn't quite match the originals.

Thank you for posting these photographs! I think I missed the earlier thread and did not realize the 1939 Belgium pavilion still existed. I am pleased to read that it is going to receive necessary repairs. Great photographs, Randy!

I just happened to spot them on flickr.com over the weekend and thought you guys would like to see them.

They had been posted there a few weeks ago- in August.
