Springing Into Spring with a Splash of Colour…

Here’s another post in my Electrical Substation series:

These used to be grey boring substations  that have been decorated around the Den Haag (The Hague) by various artists  commissioned by the Geemente (City Council) in recent  years.

This one can be found near the intersection of the Goudsbloemlaan and the Segbroeklaan.

It has a white background with geometric shapes in solid colours and on the two decorated sides (the other two sides mostly face the canal behind) there are silhouette figures of a boy mid-leap, a woman and child in a playful stance and a man in a hat with a briefcase.

Even with the limited detail that the silhouettes offer, I get the idea that the clothes are either 1930’s or 1940’s in style… do you think so too?

The daffodils have only just bloomed so an extra splash of colour  is around nearby, but in the depths of winter it’s nice to notice an electricity box that livens up the local scene.
