Photo database


Between 1886 and 1970 Brothers of Tilburg took many thousands of photographs in the Caribbean and Surinam. These photographs present a clear picture of the local community in the 20th century and the role the Brothers of Tilburg played in it. The Brothers of Tilburg manage these photographs. In co-operation with CECN and Stadsmuseum Tilburg these pictures have been digitalised, described and made searchable. Through this website they are now available to the public. The website offers the following possibilities:

-    Look for photographs of the Brothers of Tilburg in the Caribbean and Surinam.
-    Read about the Brothers of Tilburg.
-    Respond to the photographs or submit information.
