May 14, 1940. Burning oil socks at the Shell complex in the Petroleumhaven in Amsterdam. The Petroleumhaven, which nowadays is located in Westpoort, was built in 1887-1889 outside the city of Amsterdam near the Noordzeekanaal. On 14 May 1940 the British airforce set the fuel tanks on fire to avoid that the gasoline stocks would fall into German hands. Due to this action about half of the gasoline stock was destroyed.
