Beyond the site of the old Porte de Schaerbeek (p. 123) the
RuB RoyaE (p. 100; Pl. E, F, 4-1) intersects a few streets of the
suburb of St. Josse-ten-Noode and then traverses the suburb of
Schaerbeek, in which, at the N. end of the street, rises the con-
spicuous church of Ste. Marie (Pl. F, 1), an octagonal edifice with
a dome, built in 1844-53 from plans by Van Overstraeten.
The Rue Royale Ste. Marie, prolonging the Rue Royale towards
the N., passes the ancient but almost wholly rebuilt Church of St.
Servatius and intersects the Place Collignon, the centre of which is
occupied by the Maison Communale of Schaerbeek, in the Flemish
Renaissance style, from designs by Van Ysendyck (1887). Opposite
the latter, to the S.E., at the corner of the Rue Verwée, is a monu-
ment, by Ch. yan der Stappen (1903), to Alfred Verwée (1838-95),
the animal-painter. At the other end of the Rue Verwée is a monu-
ment to Em. Hiel (p. xvii), the Flemish poet. — In the E. part of
Schaerbeek is the new Pare Josaphat, in which are a ‘laiterie’ (res-
taurant) and two bronze sculptures by Desenfans (Eye, Gardener
pruning a tree).
