Postcards of the Past


Eindhoven, Netherlands


Eindhoven, a city in the Province of North Brabant in the South Netherlands, lies at the confluence of the Dommel and Gender streams, the former of which still flows through the city. Eindhoven dates back to the 12th Century and possibly even earlier. Much of the city was destroyed during WW2 with little regard to its historical heritage being observed during its subsequent reconstruction. In 1891 the Philips brothers opened a small light-bulb factory in Eindhoven - the company has since developed into one of the world's largest electronics firms. This has attracted many smaller, similar companies to the area. The population of Eindhoven is currently (2020) about 230,000.
