Former headquarters of the Royal Rotterdam Lloyd shipping company. Completed in 1922, and recently restored, the building now contains offices, galleries and appartments.
The Royal Rotterdam Lloyd shipping company served the Dutch colony East Indies. Hundreds of thousands of emigrants were processed through this building: for many people this was the last building on European soil they would ever set foot in. The journey by ship from Rotterdam to the Dutch East Indies could take as much as a year. #Lloydkwartier #Nederland #Rotterdam #The_Netherlands
