This beautiful photo album from 1950 was given to us in 2018. It’s a valuable record of everyday moments in the life of the railways 70 years ago. The photos were taken in and around the Antwerp Zuid and Antwerp-Kiel stations and show railway staff, buildings, fan of sidings, signals, etc.
The album contains 24 pages and 61 photos (originally, there were 63, but two have disappeared over time). It was probably given to the station-master – who appears in the second photo – on his retirement. However, this is only a theory. Now safely stored for the future in the NMBS/SNCB collection, it is being put on display for you.
