HAL

Former headquarters of the Holland America Line

Former headquarters of the Holland America Line (built in 1901), on the Wilhelminakade in Rotterdam. It is flanked nowadays by two skyscrapers.

If your ancestors left for the New World in the late 19th or early 20th century, chances are they will have boarded here, on the very spot where I stood to take this photo.

In the buiding are now a hotel (Hotel New York) and a cafe/restaurant/terrace (Maaskant).
