    Don't think so! The doors are no pub doors.
    Pub doors have see thru windows, these have probably wrought iron, judging by the style.

    Bugger, there are too many steps as well.

    Hi there,

    Stella Yde was the aunt of my mother (Grace Yde) and the cafe was indeed in the Tolpoorstraat in Deinze!
    I was looking for old photo's of the cafe on the internet (a few years ago they build appartments instead) and I almost fell of my chair when I saw aunt Stella's handwriting!
    She died in 2008, lived a happy and prosper life and told a lot about the good days in the cafe.
    What's the name of your father? Maybe I heard his name in one of her tales...

    Greetings from Deinze!
