Mr. Bree's picture showing the retiring Harbormaster NOOT and his entire staff.
Maarten Noot retired in 1954, not in 1953. The picture was also taken in 1954 at the Oranjestad harbor. See Esso News July 31, 1954. The Noot's were our neighbors until he retired. He was the first harbor pilot in Aruba, and later became the first Harbor Master. Around 1948 he was stationed in the colony.
