An Honour Board: … Of Sorts.

Next I discover what looks to be something of an Honour Board.  It’s unusual though because here we have it in the form of a framed picture. To my knowledge and limited experience of these things, Honour Board are usually large-ish, often dark wood boards put onto the walls of sports clubs or intuitions and feature  columns of names, usually in gold lettering.

The title given to the picture before me reads: “Name List (Honour Roll??)” then, “de ere liden van de ” (the honourable members of the) and then Sociëteit “De Vereeniging” (Private Member’s Club) where of course I am visiting. Clearly it is not a list of general members, these must have been important people within this intuition. This may not be on the sort of Honour Board that I am used o seeing, but it’s beautiful just the same.
