Out of the window


Walking in "Om en Bij", I was passing by this house when my eyes caught up this model out of the window on the top floor. Click on the picture to enlarge it and see it better! It did give me an odd feeling to see it there like he was watching the passers-by.

"Om en Bij" is a very nice string of dead end streets in the Schilderswijk district in the centre. The name comes from a a nice cottage house with a cupola, that people used to call "Om en Bij" (a bit similar to the one in Clingendael); around it, farmlands. This house was sold around 1810, and 40 years later, 120 very small working-class houses are built around inner courtyards. It looks extremely charming,
