Grandpa August and Ludovica (Vicky), US immigrants who came from the Village Aardenburg in the Flemish Region, the Southern Province of Zeeland, in the Netherlands.
Aardenburg was walled at the end of the thirteenth century: the present Kaaipoort at the old town's western entrance dates only from the sixteenth century. The name of the gate recalls Aardenburg's former harbour, the site of which is now dominated by a bank. The blue banner decorating the Kaaipoort in this picture is a temporary embellishment, celebrating the carnival that precedes Lent.
