125 years Compagnie Maritime Belge

In 2020, Antwerp Shipping Company CMB (Compagnie Maritime Belge) celebrated its 125th anniversary. An ideal occasion to reflect on Antwerp as a maritime city. How did the various shipping companies and nations develop?

Visitors strolled along the boulevard through the city's maritime history using photo material, paintings, ship models and crew portraits.

Photographs by the German photographer Dirk Brommel adorned the large light box walls. His portraits, which consist of stylised top views of cargo ships, made for a colourful series of impressive photos.
