Plaque: Place Jourdan carnival

This 28 April 2001, Vincent de Wolf, Bourgmestre d'Etterbeek, inaugurated in the presence of the Alderman, Jean-Claude Laurent, the 100th carnival in Place Jourdan.

Original inscription:

Ce 28 avril 2001,
VINCENT DE WOLF, Bourgmestre d'Etterbeek,
a inauguré, en présence de
l'Echevin JEAN-CLAUDE LAURENT,
la 100ème KERMESSE DE LA PLACE JOURDAN

When we first visited this spot (in 2000-1) there was a very utilitarian plaque (looking more like a poor example of traffic signage), no statue and just a small raised pond whose function seemed to be to provide a receptacle for discarded plastic cutlery. 2005 and things have improved greatly.
