Huub presented his website Bouwmachinesvantoen, a digital photo museum of Dutch contractors, their equipment and the people who worked in the last century.

The basis of Huubs website are many companies which no longer exist. So his digital museum can only be created and developed with your help. Old photos, stories, company information, logos, etc. are most welcome. These can be e-mailed to him or send by post.

Curious? Take a look on the website of Bouwmachinesvantoen and enjoy watching all his pictures and stories from passed times.
