After the Second World War Dutch society has become more open. Intergenerational mobility increased and homogamy decreased. To be able to choose between alternative explanations for growing openness, it would be helpful to know whether this is a new, post-war phenomenon or the end of a long term trend. Data from the Historical Sample of the Netherlands allow us to investigate this question for the province of Utrecht between 1850 and 1940. Results concerning intergenerational, marriage and career mobility all point in the same direction. Although total mobility increased, relative mobility chances remained by and large the same. Explanations for growing openness have to be sought in recent phenomena.
