It is located close to the address Kleine Berg 33 what used to be the butchery of my grand-uncle Gerrit Bannenberg (the man with the hat: Eindhoven in Beeld), Currently it is a comic store.
The brothers Bannenberg are on the picture below from 1929. From the left to the right: Pierre, Willem (was a director of the Coberco factory), Gerrit (butchers store Eindhoven), Rudolf (my granddad, butchery Amsterdam), Hein and Jan. Gerrit bought the butchery at the Kleine Berg from his brother in law Co Herkes in 1924.

I was lucky to visit Cambridge not as a tourist, but as a student. Inside the wonderful buildings of for example King’s College, Trinity College and St. John’s College (see below) there is the rich history of the University of Cambridge. Nowadays, the institutes are still important in science and the life of the students is big fun due to the inspiring environment.
