Postcard from Maastricht

Postcard from Maastricht

This postcard, sent from Maastricht to Hillegom in 1903, shows a canal in Maastricht. This is probably the canal from Maastricht to Luik (Liège) in Belgium, opened in 1850 and filled up again in 1963-1964.

Good morning, Henk!
I love your postcard. Especially the fact that it has so many people in it. I first saw the boys on the edge toward the bottom of the card and then saw the lady in the doorway!
Thanks for sharing it.

This is quite a coincidence for me, Henk, because I have a post scheduled for this week that will show the Lachine Canal from Montreal Island.
It is an obsolete canal - though it's been recently reopened for pleasure craft - but it was very important before the St-Lawrence Seaway was created.
