This is the last post of photographs from the chip I discovered in an old camera that Little Mr. trashed as a toddler.
When I first arrived in The Hague there were no large high-rise buildings at all, but in recent years the skyline has changed beyond all recognition.
I know that if I stand a a few of these spots today in 2013, that the skyline has changed yet again. That is however a future walking tour, when walking is easier that it still is at present.
Some buildings remain almost timeless, like the famous rounded edges of De Bijenkorf (which literately translates as “the beehive”) a large Dutch department store built in 1926.
There are a few narrow short-cut alleys that house little cafés and restaurants, there are the busy shopping streets, a tram goes by the De Gevangenpoort (the prison gate) which was a medieval prison built in 1280, but which has been luckily a museum since 1882.
Many of these areas deserve detailed posts at a later date. Therefore today’s photo’s are a “study” of city life as it was almost five years ago… city’s change and evolve, I will be back to walk again, and document what has changed and what has remained.
