Collection: Our great rivers 1938

Between 1903 and 1940 you could collect pictures by purchasing Verkade products and paste them in special albums. These Verkade albums came to an end due to the Second World War.

These pictures come from the album 'Our Great Rivers' by Verkade from 1938. In total there were 11 medium-sized and 15 large plates in the album.

The plates contain painted drawings of river landscapes in the Netherlands, as well as plants and trees that grow on Dutch rivers.

The album was written by Dr. Jac. P. Thijsse and the plates were painted by C. Rol, J. Voerman Jr. and H. Rol.
