Activity

1881 * Blankenberghe
Successor: Photographie Viennoise #
Gustave Bernard Donat, ° 17.8.1861; + 12.1.1947. Of Dutch nationality, he arrived in Belgium in 1873. Married in Blankenberge on 12.11.1887. He was probably manager of the "Photographie Viennoise" (see that name) until 1895, because when he opened his studio in Bruges he announced that he had arrived from Blankenberge. His application to build a studio in Malines on Marché aux Vaches was rejected by the town council in 1884.
1889 * - 1890 / Bruxelles, Rue de la Bourse, 28
Predecessor: Blancquaert E. Successor: Cornelisse-Hergel E.
Arriving from Brussels - Molenbeek on 20.2.1889, he returned there on 26.2.1890. There are advertising cards at this address under the name "Photographie de l'Etoile", a studio denomination subsequently used by Georges Triebels (see that name) in Heyst-sur-Mer. "New firm. 12 portraits: 5.50 and 6 fr. We make two prints."
1895 * - 1903 / Bruges, Rue des Pierres, 65<95-96>, 91<96-00> then 81<00-03>
Successor: Jacops Max
Arrived from Blankenberge. Still listed at this address in the 1907-1908 Monod directory alongside his successor Max Jacops.
1903 * - 1905 / Gand, Rue des Champs, 84 [Veldstraat]
Successor: Van Loo R.
Then left for Liège. Still recorded here in the directories until 1908.
1905 * - 1906 / Courtrai, Rue de Tournai, 43
Successor: Questienne Charles (Karl)
No trace in the population registry. His operator here was Hippolyte De Bode (see that name) who may have been Triebels' brother-in-law or otherwise related to him by marriage, since both men's wives shared the family name of Vandemarliere.
1907 - 1910 / Tournai, Marché aux Jambons, 31
1910 * Tournai, Grand Place, 30
Successor: De Maeyer (- Capart) Jules
1912 * - 1919 / Bruges, Rue des Flamands, 21 [Vlamingenstraat]
Recorded as a photographer domiciled in Bruges on the occasion of the wedding in Bruges on 9.6.1914 of his daughter to Rodolphe Auguste De Ruyck (° Renaix, 18.9.1891), likewise recorded as a photographer domiciled in Bruges. Rodolphe De Ruyck would go on to operate in Tournai after World War I. Triebels was subsequently established in Rue de la Monnaie, 24, studio that would later pass to his son, Emile. Triebels' peripatetic nature is manifested by repeated moves: to Antwerp in 1921, Brussels in 1933, Merksem op Kapellen in 1934, Schoten in 1943 and Oostkamp in 1946. Registered in Antwerp, Rue Carnot, 113 in 1921, Triebels declared having lived in Bruges, Ghent and Liège between 1873 and 1921.
