Jeeps and Storefront in Belgium?

This is a photo from my grandfather's WWII album. I think it's a great shot, but I'm not quite sure where it is. The French writing indicates either France or Belgium. Men from the 519th visited Waterloo battlefield and nearby museums in the fall / winter of 1945. Above the door it says "Museum" and the GIs' dress indicates the war is over. So, I suspect that this museum and cafe is near Waterloo in the French-speaking area of Belgium.

  1. The vehicle on the left looks like a "normal" jeep, but the one on the right could be a 3/4 ton "weapons carrier", not a Jeep.

  2. Thanks. Besides the DUKW, I'm not too familiar with vehicles, so I appreciate the clarification.
