1910 seems odd, as it says 1925 on the card. It seems a poster related to the remembrance festival of the 700th anniversary of the beguinage in Bruges?
Beghinis Brugensibus Vineam
Johan. Marg.
Comis. Flandr.
Consul.
1225 - 1245

City of Bruges
8-9 and 10 August 1925
Beautiful parade and historical festivities XIII century in the Princely Beguinage

Rgds, Thomas

Thomas, 1910 was the date of the poster artwork, which was then used in 1925 on this postcard.
