All aboard! Today I went to a nice exhibition in the cargo hold of a boat. The exhibit commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Albert Canal. The Albert Canal (Dutch: Albertkanaal) is a canal located in northeastern Belgium, which was named for King Albert I of Belgium. The canal connects Antwerp with Liège, and also the Meuse River with the Scheldt River.

The Albert Canal was constructed from 1930 through 1939. The German construction company Hochtief AG worked on the canal between 1930 and 1934, but then it was completed by Belgian companies. My grandfather worked for one of the Belgian companies and helped with the actual excavation of the canal.
