Electricity for the neighborhood

Now it is normal to turn on a lamp when it gets dark, simply with the push of a button. But not so long ago, not everyone had electricity. This house of the Gemeente Electriciteits Bedrijf (Municipality of Electricity Company) built around the turn of the century made sure that the neighborhood could draw its power! It is still working and neatly maintained at the Noordsingel.

If you have to go to the other side of Rotterdam Centraal, the train station, you can go either trough the station, using your public transport subscription card or for free and without the gates pass the station trough the tunnel beside the station. I took this picture in 2018, so from the archives, but I like it!

A lightened (monday)morning!

Sometimes a early (monday)morning can be so beautiful in terms of light! Walking to the metro (or subway or underground) my route was through this street, the Korte Hoogstraat and the sun offered me this photo opportunity! I took advantage of it and now you can also see and feel a Rotterdam morning!
