Introduction

Do sources A, B and C give similar or different interpretations of the nature of the terrain in Flanders? Explain your answer.

    Source C the old lady, portrayed as a Suffragette, also has a discontented impression on her face, and the fact that she is old makes it more obvious that she is discontented, as when old ladies have reached their dotage, they tend to be more grumpy, unsatisfied, miserable and wicked, loosing their patience and the fragile, Angelic look about them.
