|The back view of Visbank.|
Visbank. Vis is the Dutch word for fish. This place named Visbank because in the history, it is a building where the catch of fishes was being held and stored. The building was built in the year of 1778. Yes, it is that old! Inspired and designed by Jacob van Schie. Our city is famous too because of the haring or herring. The Visbank is located at the Oude Haven. The age, the history, and the view at the harbor (haven) made this place one of my favorites. The place is accessible, whether I will go to the supermarket, or to my doctor, or even to just hang out. In the year 1984, it became a flower shop, on 2006, it became a lunch room, and on 2014, it became and ice-cream saloon until today during summer. The Visbank has contributed so much to the history of Vlaardingen that it has a miniature at the famous tourist spot in The Hague, the Madurodam. I want to show some of my Visbank photos.
