Ommen op de drempel van de moderne tijd Ommen op de drempel van de moderne tijd

Beelden uit de jaren 1890-1950

by Wormgoor, I.

A look back at an era in which many changes took place in this historic medieval city, east of Zwolle, the provincial capital of Overijssel, and located on the banks of the river Vecht. On the threshold of the modern era, Ommen became a stop in the Dutch railway system, got hooked up with electricity and water. Its agricultural landmass was enlarged through cultivation projects and area drainage canals were improved, the city merged with its rural district, and became entrenched on the Dutch maps as a tourism destination. Ommen's society as well was caught up in many changes. If you master the Dutch language and are interested in this community, this book will be of great interest to you. Easy read. A $42.95 value.
