De Maurice Velghe (87) of The Happening of the map. The collection of photos on the vissersverleden of The Defect, and the region of which he is a 25-year build up, it is gone. The pictures were all in the vissersmuseum in The System. Now, the walls are bare.
“It happened on Sunday,” said an excited Maurice. “In the afternoon, I noticed the theft. All of the photos with the panel, and all, were gone. It must be sure to 500. Over 25 years, I have worked all over the world. I was happy to have the copy and I have the original photos are still in my possession. I have had them many years ago and all of them have been digitized and are printed at a larger size, so that the inside of the vissersmuseum, they were able to see it. All of that work is now lost.”
for Years I’ve used it for the museum, and then you get this. I hope that the person who takes my photos and has taken into account, they still will return it.
I wanted to have a Sunday in the shed to go into, but it is also the key was missing. Only two of the other volunteers know what that is, but for those people, I do not have to get hold of. In the meantime, I did file a report with the police, and there was no inbraaksporen. So it has to be someone with a key entered into, but which one? I like it a lot. For many years, I have used it for the museum, and then you come up against. I hope that the person who takes my photos and has taken into account, they still will return. It is a remarkable fact, that, only, my pictures are gone. All of the material, and the mock-ups of model ships, there are, however, still remain.”
