Jaap Kersten taking on the Mur de Grammont in the 1961 Tour of Flanders. It may not be Flanders because he seem rather clean for a Spring Classics race. It could well be another race held in East Flanders that happened to include this climb. No matter it is a great shot showing the effort climbing these walls that are lumped around Belgium.

The picture is from the treasure trove on Flikr from the Nationaal Archief. They have a brilliant section on cycling an anyone keen on the sport should take a gander.
