I went recently to the archives from Antwerp where I do collect from time to time files and other information for my family research.
During my research I usually try to understand and focus on several topics which I do come across and about which I do tend to post from time to time some articles on this website.
One of the topics I am currently focussing on, and about which I hope to post in the near future, is the district distribution in the city of Antwerp.
As part of this research I did request to have a look in the file about the reconstruction of the sewers. This interesting file contains a few architectural sketches from 1925 about existing sewers, several outlines of the city, etc.
I expected to receive a file in the size of an A4-sized paper, may be an A3-sized paper. But I was really amazed when I found out about the real size of the paper (no, this is not for a kabouter Plop show):
