Princess Clémentine of Belgium, to the Army and to the Navy. Slide shows. Slide views for hire" [Monod, 1904]. Opening at this address announced for 2.3.1898. Transferred his warehouse from no. 44 to no. 32 on 14.4.1906, but still advertised as an optician at no. 44 in 1906-1909. Appears not to have had a portrait studio, but views signed by him do exist, including a stereo series "Littoral belge". Also traded here as "Littoral-Optical" at an unspecified period. Demuenynck was a member of the "Société photographique de Dunkerque" in 1911-1914 and probably years earlier.
