Noord-Hollands Archief in Haarlem celebrates centenary

Noord-Hollands Archief  / The North Holland Archives in Haarlem has by far the largest provincial image collection in the country. Exactly a century ago, the archive was given control over all those prints, maps and drawings. A real treasure of images of North Holland. 

On Wednesday 10 oktober 2023 it was celebration time in the Janskerk in the center of Haarlem. Many people came to the opening of the exhibition “Vereeuwigd: 100 jaar Provinciale Atlas Noord-Holland.” (Immortalized: 100 years of the Provincial Atlas of North Holland). This year marks almost a century since the then State Archives for North Holland took over the province’s image collection.

The exhibition Immortalized: 100 years of the Provincial Atlas of North Holland can be seen from Thursday, October 19 to January 20, 2024 in the Janskerk at Jansstraat 40 in Haarlem.

Here’s the website of the Noord-Hollands Archief
