Hembrug area is a former industrial complex where arms were made: guns, cannons, tanks. The area is now a refuge for artists. Amsterdamsche Droogdok Maatschappij, better known as ADM, was an Amsterdam company that repaired ships using dry docks in the Netherlands. After World War II it also built ships.
