The Obscur Folder


   The law courts of Bruxelles is perhaps the most official Passage place that exists. The discoverer of this one affirm themselves to have borrowed it one Sunday of 1980 bringing there one of rare testimonys worthy of faith. Nevertheless, it would seem today that transformations in the basements irremediably made impossible the possibility of Passage. Any hope is however not lost yet and the attentive visitor will be able itself to note how much researchers wander at the present time in these places in search of this Passage.

   If there had been a doubt about the destination of this passage, it would quickly have been swept by the great similarity which exists with its starting place. The law courts of Brussels and the palace of the three powers of Brüsel have indeed only very few details which differe one from the other. With this great similarity is added the fact that the project superintendent architect of the two buildings is only one person: Joseph Poelart.

   Many works were written on the law courts or his architect. Among these works, some of them bring indices and information which permit to establish the veracity of a Passage place to this point. We will only quote here the book of James Welles "Shadows in the night, a secret society in Belgium" or the report of Wilbur Leguebe "the B file". No doubt that one day, the exact place of passage will be again discovered.
