   The assumption that buildings can be a Passage is based on the architectural similarities between buildings of this world and that of the obscure world. A different assumption is that only a detail, a characteristic of decoration or furniture, makes it possible to identify a building as a Passage. However there is nothing that leads to believe that the museum of Comic Books in Bruxelles could hide a Passage place.

   However, there is a historical fact that allows us to believe the very presence of a Passage. The museum of the Comic Books, in the past theWaucquez stores, was designed by the architect Victor Horta. However, now the quality of this ferryman can no longer be verified or justified. Certainly, several researchers even try to show that Horta had carefully chosen thess particular places for his creation, since they were favorable for opening a passage.

   But there is one more striking fact: a lamp on a standard. This lamp is exhibited in the very center of the hall of the museum. It is in fact the same lamp, but human sized, that can be found within the center of the Green Lake as well.

   Of course, this indication does not justify only the assumption of Passage. The collection of books in this museum is large and hence many presume that passages via the means of books are present. However, at this moment none of these thoughts have been verified.
