° 28.8.1859. Arrived from Ghent on 27.8.1889. Registered as shipping agent and photographer. Studio photographer ("Georg van Léaucourt") before becoming a manufacturer of photographic plates, an activity first embodied in the partnership "Georges van Léaucourt & Cie", founded on 15.10.1893 with Philippe Hannet (see that name). The partnership was dissolved in 1894. Thereafter established a limited company "Plaques Léaucourt" (see that entry). It is highly possible that the portrait studio was closed when van Léaucourt devoted himself to manufacturing, even though some directories still list him as a photographer until 1903. Member of the "Société Photographique de Courtrai". van Léaucourt sold his shareholding to Stanislas Nolf (see that name) in 1903. Left Courtrai for Brussels - Ixelles on 17.12.1904.
