Protest in Amersfoort. Married couple demonstrates for better housing by residing in the open air in the Barchman Wuytierslaan near the station. The Algemeen Handelsblad (a newspaper) of April 10, 1924 thought this "peculiar protest" was a "sign of the times". Shots: provisional shelter (tent in a sort of cart) and signs explaining the situation of the couple; the couple drink coffee in the open air; a woman in bed is handed a cup of coffee.
