Rotterdam - Mathenesserplein
Uitgave Van Der Horst Te's - Gravenhage in Holland. No. 29
Postmarked from Rotterdam on August 22, 1947.
There is a stamped advertisement in the postmark section which reads: 1847 - 1947 Eeuwfeest Holland Michigan USA with an image of a Church. It appears that Holland, Michigan, was settled in 1847 and the word Eeuwfeest means centennial 100 anniversary. Holland, Michigan, retains some ties with the Netherlands. The city was visited by Queen Juliana of the Netherlands in 1952 and while Queen Juliana was still Princess, she received an honorary doctorate from Hope College of Holland, MI, in 1944.
