Herring warehouse

Vlaardingen, August 30, 2008

When Vlaardingen stopped being a fishing town, the warehouses at the Wilhelmina harbour got new destinies. Some were left to rot, some housed restaurants, a snooker center and so on, some were used for small industries and transhipment. Most of the old warehouses looked dark and dirty - and that is how I remember them. Some are restored and got their bright colours back - and that is how I saw this one last August.
