After showing many pictures of the beach around Scheveningen, I wanted to post a picture of the main shopping street of this neighbourhood of The Hague. It is the Keizerstraat (The street of the Emperor), the historical centre of this ex fishermen village, and the main way for The Hague residents to head for the beach as far back as the 17th century. It is named after Charles V, who was in the 16th century the emperor of the German Empire (Netherlands was then part of it). The church, dating back the 15th century has always been the central point of the street.
