Thursday Doors – Doors at a ship

Doors at a ship

The Geertruida, by coincidence the ship has my name: Geert, and my mothers name, Geertruida, was launched in 1906. She is a ‘maatschip’ what means as much that she is build to a specific size fitting the route she had to sail. The Geertruida sailed until the seventies of the last century and is now resting in the Maritime Museum in Rotterdam. It is possible to visit her, and dozens of other ships, to get a feel of the living conditions on board. Her doors are always open and the sign next to the door on the right welcomes you 🙂

  1. Rotterdam – have some friends living there, and in Ridderkerk my niece:) Since we have to be frugal with space in Holland a maatschip makes sense! Nice it has a variant of your name!
