A beautiful school poster of the Rock Island Helgoland in very nice colours
Published by Johan Ykema in The Hague around 1900. In a beautiful state without flaws. On the back, the school is listed where the poster has been used.
Truly a jewel on the wall.
The island of Helgoland is located 70 kilometers off the German North Sea coast. It has special 60 metres tall rust-coloured rocks; This is a geological wonder, because even though the bottom of Helgoland consists from limestone as the White Cliffs at Dover, the island itself consists from different layers of sand stone.
In the world wars the island was used as a base by the U-boats. The English bombed and destroyed it in 1945 so that it was temporarily uninhabitable. It is full of subterranean tunnels and bunkers.
