The history of Softland through Greenhouse Effect to Tyson

For many years this was Softland 1, beginning in the era of internet cafes (incidentally, Softland 2 became Funky Munkey a long time ago).

The first picture here is from 2003 when the sign was down revealing the mysterious 'Garage'. The picture of the inside is sometime in the noughties and was sent to me by Epsilon. The third picture is 2005.

The shopfront and signage changed little from around 2006 to when Softland closed, early in 2022. In autumn 2022 the shop re-opened as a branch of Greenhouse Effect, which itself started on Warmoesstraat and moved to Nieuwmarkt several years ago. Shortly after that it changed again to Tyson.

The following three pictures are from 2015, 2019 and 2023 respectively.
