Alexis Auguste, ° 17.7.1872. On CV, "Photographer-draughtsman. Speciality: large portraits". Recorded as a photographer aged 40 living in Brussels in February 1909. Studio still active in the interwar period until 1932 at the earliest. He published postcards documenting the war-ravaged coastal districts in 1920. This led to Verbouwe's activities as a local historian and collector of prints, maps and other iconographic documents of these regions. He wrote a series of books "Iconografie der Gemeenten van West-Vlaanderen" based on his collection, covering the areas of Furnes in 1950, Ypres in 1953 and Ostend in 1956. Verbouwe's collection is held in the "Westflandrica" archives at the municipality of Kortrijk / Courtrai.
