A scarce "vue d'optique" (with mirror image title) of the central square in Spa, Belgium. This fantastic city view full of peoople and horse drawn carriages and shows two fountains. One is identified as the Pohon mineral fountain. The spas where personal care treatments, often including mineral water or springs, originate with this town, Spa...its in the name. In French and German.
