On Friday 18 September 1931, Schwabe and his daughter, Alice, travelled to Veere, in Zeeland. Alice stayed with Alma Oakes, in the Struijs, a Gothic merchant house that Oakes later gave to the Dutch State as a museum. Schwabe stayed 'in a pension in the Market Place' (Diary). In the three days that followed, he made a number of drawings of buildings in the town.
