Clipper Barge Haringvliet | 20220123

Clipper Barge Haringvliet | 20220123 | 1-memo•com | Classic clipper barge ‘Verwisseling’ earlier this month at the quay of the Haringvliet inland port in the delta of the Rhine river (Rijn) and Meuse river (Maas) in Rotterdam. Unfortunately I missed the ‘klipperkrullen’ curly decoration at the front of this sailing ship.
On the other bank – the south bank – a few buildings that survived the German bombing of Rotterdam in World War II – aka the Rotterdam Blitz – merchant houses from the early 1700s.
Because of the May 14, 1940 bombing the Rotterdam Dance School of Corrie Hartong had to move and found accomodation in one of these buildings with the white fronts , the 3rd from the right (no. 92). To the right the Rotterdam Student Society at no 94.
The rightmost merchant house with a white front – no. 98 – belonged to merchants from the 1700s – like families from the Dutch East India Company (Snellen) and in the 1800s a mayor (van Vollenhoven) and later the German merchant family Sölling that started banking with German relations.
In the early 1900s the Incasso-Bank and another bank housed here. The Incasso Bank made changes to the front of the building. May 1940 during the German blitz krieg , Dutch soldiers were fighting here. (Info on no 98 in HET KOOPMANSHUIS HARINGVLIET 98 DOOR MR. W. C. MEES | Historisch Genootschap Roterodamum | Stadsarchief Rotterdam.
In the fog in the background above the roofs a tip of the red Willemsbrug bridge spanning the Nieuwe Maas river.
