A little further along the canal behind the sign of yesterday you have this view. Yes all the old dutch towns have a lot of water in town. If it wasn't for drainage or commerce it would be used for military purpose but mostly for all three together. Don't forget that the Netherlands is just one big delta of the Rhine so water plenty.

An old ad for a store with stoves, bath tubes,water heaters and household items but chiseled out of sandstone. The shop is past away a long time ago but the sign still remains. One for monday murals here.

I am a bit ashamed that I have never visited the Maurits House in the Hague until last wednesday. A former town palace of count Johan Maurits van Nassau-Siegen build between 1633 and 1644. In 1685 it became a hotel for distinguished guests of the state. Since 1822 it is a museum, then still called the Royal Cabinet and it started with 200 paintings given by king William the first.
One of the most well known paintings of the collection. The girl with the pearl earring from Johannes Vermeer
Another one from a for me totally unknow artist Clara Peeters from 1615. Then I haven't spoken about the lot of Rembrandt's or the "Frick" collection they are showing now.

On the construction fair was also a firm who presented itself as a model maker for architects.
In my eyes it was a bit to smooth but still remarkable
They had a complete wall covered with mostly interiors.

Walking from the train to the trade fair I saw a lot of people looking out the window
They saw this. Never seen so a colorful and tidy construction site. A good start to go to a building trade fair in utrecht. ( The building in the right is the new musical theatre Vredenburg )

Yesterday evening I walked over the Merwede square where once Anne Frank lived on number 37/2 before WWII. I saw some posters for a play about her life on garbage containers that are now placed there. I think this place is a bit dishonored by such a move.

This mural inside the new wing of the "stedelijk museum" of modern art in amsterdam has really gigantic proportions. Designed by Petra Blaissee Biebkriebels had made a post over it earlier on with some more information you can find here. You find also the connecting walls and floors on the other site as an architect drawing on the tapestry. I dedicate this one for mural mondays.
