1958 Netherlands

95. Netherlands 1958 – The Hague, Delft, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Marken, Volendam, War Cemeteries and Scheveningen

Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!

Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.

Den Haag – The Hague

Hofvijver – She would have been standing under the statue of Willem II to take this.

Hofvijver – At the other end opposite the Golden Age painting gallery. I was thinking ‘Are there people in that ship?’ Then I clocked how big the ducks would be.

Looking at something – but what?

This was taken in The palace of Peace. To Doris’ left is the Yugoslav chair, far right (of her, not politically) in the front is the USA chair, I’m afraid I cannot identify the others.

I guess she is sitting on the UK chair – but that might be it in the background.

Delft

Unfortunately many of the shots from Delft were blurred and thus unusable. This is the only one. Note the ubiquitous VW Beetles. I wonder how many cars ended up the canal

Rotterdam

This is the same flow stall as on https://wdeod.com/2017/11/28/netherlands-1950s/ Unlike that one, the Ektachome has kept its colour.

29 Netherlands 1958 Apeldoorn
Apeldoorn. Note the 50s people carrier. I thought royalty were visiting, but I assume now it was their coach as it appears later too. The guy in the window must be in his 80s now.

Nijmegen

Grote markt. I don’t recognise the car dead centre.

I like this as a photo. The child is in focus and the crowd makes you wonder what is going on.

Marken and Volendam

Traditional dressed people in these two adjacent towns. The captions follow what was written on the slide. Either it is two sets that somehow do not duplicate numbers or she moved between towns. Or of course that she got mixed up afterwards.
