offLeon: Charles-Henri Kielen

Rhine river ship license

Started work on a new project for offLeon, tentatively called Charles-Henri Kielen. Based on interviews with my great aunts Sjaan, Charlotte and Adriana Kielen.  Shown below is the ship license from 1907 of my great-grandparents tug boat Vertrouwen (Trust). A commercial rhine river vessel which sailed between the Netherlands and Germany before, during and after both WWI and WWII and was held captive in Berlin with their nine children.
