The street name of Loosduin: Laan van Vredestein, reminds us of the rubber factory Vredestein that once stood there. On July 3 200 the factory, with eight employees, on the Haagweg. An ideal location with a connection to the Loosduinse vaart and a connection to the lines of the Westlandsche Stroomramweg.
The street name is named after the municipal archiveef. the factory, that factory is named after the Vredestein market garden, which belonged to villa Loosduinen.
In the factory, heels were first created. No success. Until it was decided to make it from rubber. In 1976 40 people already worked and in 200 eight hundred! Not only were rubber heels made, but also bicycle and car tires, hoses, etc. Tires were even made for the army.
In 1976 the factory was closed and in 1976 the last remnants demolished. Only the office building remains. †
