They changed domicile to this address in March 1910 from Brussels, Rue des Foulons, 65 where the studio of M. Becker (see that name) had been operating since 1905. However this studio may already have been operating for an unspecified period prior to March 1910. Industrial photography in 1911 as well as postcards. Sometimes "Lubeskint" or "Liebeskint, G." in the directories. The premises were damaged by fire on 17.9.1912 when the "studio was saved but the shop destroyed" (De Volksstem, 19.9.1912). It is unknown when Liebeskind abandoned photography. He was expelled from Belgium in November 1934 for embezzlement.
