|Titel||A short history of Eindhoven|
This short history of Eindhoven has been written for foreigners interested in the local history, who visit our town or live here for a short time.. Only essentials could be dealt with, some things of less importance however are mentioned in order te illustrate certain developments. We did not aim at completeness, not even in the choice of the mail events. We wanted to sketch some social-economic aspects of the town history and the developmental history of the shapes of habitation. Dutch readers will miss in our story persons and facts dear to them. We passed them by because our choice was made for the convenience of foreign readers. We are indebted to mr. J. Geevers (town hall official) and Father H. van Agt M.H. for correcting the English text.
