The Netherlands-Uitgeest
Series taken during a late afternoon visit to the mill that drains the polder "Dorregeest", together with an electrically pumping station. This mill (1896 AD) replaced an earlier one, that was struck by lightning in 1895. A-14-year old daugther of miller Deijle lost her life on that occasion.
In the background "Limmergat", part of lake Alkmaar, and two polders (left: Hempolder, right Dorregeesterpolder).
