|Rotterdam booklet - Edition Weenenk & Snel, The Hague|
|Back cover - with Weenenk & Snel logo|
Inside I found nine unused postcards showing views of Rotterdam all in good condition, but obviously old. I have since discovered that Weenenk & Snel from the Hague have produced many views of the cities and towns in the Netherlands most of which are from the early 1900s.
This is one of the cards in the booklet.
|Rotterdam - Plan C|
The back of each card is the same, except for the Rtt number you can see on this view.
|Back of Postcards|
Plan C is identified Rtt 015. All cards have the Weenenk & Snel, den Haag triangular logo. The dotted line at the right is the perforation which allows a card to be removed. There is no evidence that any have ever been taken out.
In trying to identify the age of the cards I succeeded in finding another view of Plan C, together with a date of 1915, but unfortunately this date is not on the card.

The city of Rotterdam was badly damaged by German raids during WWII, with the center of the city being razed to the ground. So far I have been unable to place the location of the photo in modern Rotterdam.
I would welcome comments, especially those that can identify the location of Plan C.
I will show the other cards in later posts.
