The story of the Red Star Line shipping company is closely linked to Antwerp. The shipping company and its passengers were very visible in the city in the period 1872 - 1934. There was a time when two ships left Antwerp weekly to bring passengers to America. Every week, 4,000 emigrants went from Central Station to Rijnkaai on foot. Most came from small villages in Eastern Europe and they were amazed by what they saw. But the people of Antwerp also didn't always know what to think of these exotic creatures.
