Friday, February 1, 2013
At the exhibition on Woerden in the .. I spotted a photo of the city of Woerden about 60 years ago. In those days the city was more or less still within the city-moat. Now a days the city has grown about 5 to 6 times it size. But the skyline has always remained the same though. I recognize it immediately.
