Netherlands in 1966 Through Beautiful Vintage Photos

Government-encouraged emigration efforts to reduce population density prompted some 500,000 Dutch people to leave the country after the war.

The 1960s and 1970s were a time of great social and cultural change, such as rapid de-pillarisation characterized by the decay of the old divisions along political and religious lines. Youths, and students in particular, rejected traditional mores and pushed for change in matters such as women’s rights, sexuality, disarmament and environmental issues.

These amazing photos from Yvonne Thompson were taken by her father that show street scenes of the Netherlands in 1966.
