Electricity fabric


It is always very strange to drive around in the city and suddenly see emerging in front of you a big electricity fabric. This one, built in 1904 stands in De Constant Rebecquestraat, in the Regentessekwartier . The canal was digged in 1889 to allow the waters from the city centre to go all the way to Scheveningen. At the time, it stood in the middle of a big industrial area, but has now become a residential area....with industrial land being changed into a park / sport complex (de Verademing).

That power plant seems to be in good shape and it probably isn't too noisy if the area is becoming residential.

Interesting sculpture? in the foreground.

A moody dark sort of shot with a little intrigue! COol.

Mooie foto, in deze kleuren. En knap hoe je altijd weer zinnige informatie bij een beeld weet te verzamelen. Ken je trouwens Half Gouda? Ook met een dagelijkse foto, alleen zijn de teksten anders van opzet: dagelijks een hapje poëzie.

Hi Lezard,
Thats strange indeed, is that factory new in the Regentesse-quartier, I think not though because a factory cannot just 'rise out'the streets?

Thanks for you great photography about The Hague/Scheveningen my BIRTHTOWN, Have agood weekend:)

Thanks all for your comments.

Fenix, I wondered the same, I'm not sure whether thsi factory is still in use. I was there in a weekday and everything looked very quite, though in good state. I'm still finding out!

Half Gouda, what is your url?

Joann, thanks for commenting again. This factory is not new at all, just 100 years about.
