Between the current Leopold Street and the Willem Geetsstraat founded a sure William R about 1850 the Usines R on. of these buildings only the name remains standing. Of the buildings that were built later on this place is the history to determine with certainty. We do know that since 1928 monarch successively a furniture factory, a factory and a furniture factory was located again. Finally, a toy company in 2002 left the buildings.  Every Malinois knows “the arsenal”, the Central workshop of the Belgian railways. Because the growth in the rail industry at one time, was no longer to keep up with the ferry company decided to outsource a number of assignments to private enterprises. To and around the arsenal were different private initiatives. In 1850 founded the Brussels native William R (1820-1867), whose father also worked as an engineer in the arsenal, a forge for the production of(cast iron) railroad components. The company grew further and delivered over time fully finished coaches and specially designed wagons on the Belgian railways. The second half of the years around the arsenal the factories 18OO turned on full blast. But shortly after the turn of the century started to reduce orders for the Belgian market. There had to be so looked forward to other markets and other products. R built for the Dutch to Chinese market rail carriages. But they were also involved in the construction of buses. At his death left William R to the city a sum of money from his estate. The interest was to serve for the training of worker children. In 1872 was a square named after him. As far as I know turned a part of the R-factory still well into the 1960s.

Author: Jeroen

In Dutch, my homelanguage: Ik ben Jeroen, tot januari 2015 was ik al dik 26 jaar werkzaam in een psychiatrisch ziekenhuis in een stad vlakbij Werelds grootste havenstad Rotterdam. Eerst als verpleegkundige/begeleider op high care, later op afdeling dubbeldiagnose (verslavingen) en ook nog een tijdje als administratief medewerker. Ik heb een spierziekte "Poli Myositis" (alle spieren zijn ontstoken) daardoor weinig energie. Sinds augustus 2015 is daarbij de diagnose Kanker gesteld, en ben ik helemaal arbeidsongeschikt geworden en zit middenin de behandelfase. Gelukkig ben ik daarnaast getrouwd, vader, en opa, en heb de nodige hobby's. Een daarvan is transportmiddelen verzamelen en daarmee een blog schrijven. Dit blog begon met bussen, maar nu komen ook sleepboten, auto's trucks en dergelijke aan bod. Kijk en geniet met me mee, reageer, en vul gerust aan. Fouten zal ik ook graag verbeteren. In English: I'm Jeroen, till januari 2015 I was already 26 years working as a nurse in a psychiatric hospital, near Rotterdam, Worlds biggest harbour with more than 98 nationalities living within it's borders. First I worked on closed high care ward and the last years on a ward with mainly addicted people. I liked my work very much. In 2007 I got ill. I got the diagnose Poli Myositis, a musscle dissease. Al my mussles are inflamed. And last august I got another diagnose. Cancer. It's plaveicelcel carcinoma and treated with Chemo and radioation. So I've even less energy than the last years. Still I try to make something of my life and the blog is helping with surviving with some pleasure.
