Then and now
Amersfoort Then (around 1900) and now (around 2006)
The city changes all the time

Everybody knows that the look of a city changes during the years. On this page I have photos of Amersfoort from around 1900 and from around 2006. So have a look what changes during a century. The old images are all coming from the www.archiefeemland.nl

I am at this moment working on the pictures and hope to be ready within a couple of months

A building on "de Hof" left an image of the building taken in 1865 saying "DROGERYEN en VERFWAREN", which means as much as "Drugstore and Paints". Nowadays there is a hotel in the building called "Logement de Gaaper"

Two old buildings on " 't Havik". Left in 1905 and right in 2005. As you can see, it looks now much better then a century ago
