Do any business directories exist on-line for the late teens to 1920's for Gand (French) or Ghent (Dutch), Belgium ?  Thx Dusty

I am searching specifically for a business called "De Brauwer - A Gand". I would like any historical data, address, time business was operating, etc. Most anything that someone can assist with that verify's its existence and time frame.  Thanks kindly.  dusty

Still searching for this firm in Gand, Belgium or any info on the company from 1920's. Also searching for a gunmaker by the name of Joseph Monisse in Liege 1920's. Looking for business addresses for both. Thank you.

Many Thanks Sir for the kind reply. I have been in touch with littlegun.it but no replies as of yet. Still searching for a business address for either De brauwer - A gand or Jos. Monisse - Liege. Circa 1920's.
