Not much to say about this picture. I liked the view of the old houses with at the end the new buildings and the blue sky… Its the Jacobusstraat, a side street of the Oude Binnenweg, a nice old shopping street in the city center.

The Binnenweg already existed in 1454 and was the connection between Rotterdam and Schoonderloo and Delfshaven. The Oude Binnenweg between the Karel Doormanstraat and the Mauritsweg was hardly affected by the bombing of Rotterdam and is the only pre-war shopping street in the center of Rotterdam.
