Brussels and the Senne
In the 19th century, Brussels concealed the river that had been present at its birth. The rural charm of the Senne had vanished and the recent industrialisation had made the riverbanks squalid, and seriously polluted the water. The people of Brussels wanted to put right a disastrous situation. This book explores the extent of the town planning operation that took place once the city councillors decided to hide underground what had become an open sewer.
