Steam pumping station in Lemmer

Reportage about the opening of the pumping station in Lemmer
On October 7, 1920, Queen Wilhelmina opened the pumping station in the Frisian town of Lemmer. The reportage shows the arrival of the Queen, and her reception by dignitaries. A young woman hands the Queen a bouquet of flowers, and we then see images of the interior and exterior of the pumping station, as well as the network of sluices.
