Enclosed between the river Vecht, the railway line, the water treatment plant and sports ground Loevenhoutsedijk you will find the Rode Brug neighbourhood, a small but renowned working class neighbourhood. Life here changed considerably over the past seventy years. The rural character was gone by the time the Overvecht housing developments were completed, factories such as the ‘Benenkluif’ (a bone char factory) were relocated and many entrepreneurs closed their shops. In this exhibition at Volksbuurtmuseum, residents share their memories to show you the social history – past and present – of this neighbourhood.

Volksbuurtmuseum is opened Tuesday to Sunday, from 11h till 17h. This exhibition runs till 26 September 2021.
