Some of the oldest known photographs of Roeselare were made by Callebert, one of them a view of the "Klein Seminarie". Callebert possessed a collection of miscellaneous stereo views, identified with intertwined initials "F.C." or more rarely a backmark "Callebert - Blieck", referring to his wife Marie Louise Blieck (1836 - 1891). His father-in-law Pierre Augustin Blieck (° Werwik, 1.11.1807; + April 1874) also owned stereoviews, bearing his collector's mark "Blieck - Vuylstecke / Wervicq", referring to his wife Clementina Beatrice Vuylste(c)ke. Views originating from both collections are now in the holdings of the Photography Museum in Antwerp.
