Eindhoven is the city of major changes. From 6,000 inhabitants in 1900 to almost 240,000 in 2022. All this went around with an enormous transformation that has lasted for 120 years. Among other things, the arrival of Philips, the Second World War, the reconstruction and the current growth spurt of the Brainport region have had a major influence on the appearance of the city. This book uses old and new photos of fifty places in the city to show what this did and is doing to Eindhoven.
Jan van Schagen (1940) has published on the history of his birthplace Eindhoven.
This book is his final work.
On December 3, 2022, shortly after the publication of this book, Jan van Schagen passed away at the age of 82.
