In 1883, a new project was added to the ambitious plans for Rotterdam harbour: the completion of two dry docks. The structures would be 30 metres high, 90 and 45 metres long and would float on the water. That would make it easier to inspect and repair large vessels in the growing world harbour. Hameter photographed the installations from a wide panoramic angle. Later, he added a typically Dutch cloud-filled sky.
