Old storage dock in Brussels

Until the first half of the 20th century, Brussels, as one of the largest cities and capital of Belgium, needed the supply of numerous goods. This was partly done via the railways but mainly via the canals. On the one hand via the Charleroi canal in the south, mainly coal and steel, on the other via the Willebroek canal, in the north, which was directly connected to the Scheldt and the port of Antwerp. To this end, there were several storage docks built in the city where the ships could moor, around these docks were built the warehouses that supply the city. These docks are muted today and the warehouses have almost disappeared. Some old specimens are still protected as industrial heritage. The watercolor shows the bustle in a Brussels dock at the start of the last century. Image size: 260 x 360 mm
