Historical film Reederij op de Lek 6

(last trips)

This is a piece from the company’s movie ‘Om en op de Lek‘ from 1948 of the Stoomboot Reederij op de Lek (SRodL). The recordings are from photographer and movies C.A. den Oudsten from Lekkerkerk.

We first see beautiful images of a passing No. 6 and then some of a Rotterdam-Schoonhoven cruise with the No. 2.


These recordings are certain of the last weeks of the boat service but it is not certain that it is the last one. Raderboot No. 2 did the last trip at the end of February 1948. The No. 6 did not leave the line service after 1946, but did charters until 1949. (HK)
