View of Bruges, showing the market place and the Belfry tower. The Belfry is an 83m high mediaeval tower; first added to the square circa 1240, it was rebuilt in 1280 after a fire. The octagonal upper stage of the Belfry was added between 1482 and 1486. It housed the former city treasury and the municipal archives. John Herschel made a number of tours of Europe in the 1820s with various friends and this may have been picked up as a souvenir from one of those trips. Alternatively it may have been bought for the family collection for the historical significance of the site pictured.
