Whenever I visit project near Delfshaven, I try to check on the Renovation progress Fabriek van Delfshaven. Since I fist entered this building in 2010, heavily decayed at the time, there has been something intriguing about this project. Probably because of the location, right next to the river ‘De Schie’. It’s central point in Delfshaven. And last but not least, it’s rich history, which is visible from both inside and outside. So whenever I got in the area with a camera at hand, I tried to shoot some photos of the renovation progress of this former dry-cleaning factory. This factory was built in the early 1900’s by the Roeloff family, for dying clothes and later on used for dry-cleaning, as they found a way to make it affordable for the common people. It was a surprise to see offspring at the official opening. After telling about what it was like growing up living next to the factory, like riding a bike next to stockpiles of laundry, looking inside the factory through a window from their house and blowing the steam whistle at the beginning and end of the labourday they revealed the ‘first stone’ from 1907.
