Rotterdam in 1923

Jump to last reply

"But what did the city look like before the 1940 bombing" is an enduring parlour game with Rotterdam afficionados. Here's an aerial photograph from 1923 that gives you an idea. If you compare with googlemaps, look out for St Lawrence's church and take it from there. Certain features are still recognizable, such as Binnenrotte (the traintrack in the middle), Hoogstraat and Oude Haven. In all other respects the city is unrecognizable
