The fence around the park

A great deal of the fence around the Vondelpark ( yesterdays post ) consist of this forged iron work. Made in 1883 by Alexander Linneman for the colonial exhibition that took place that year in the park. All the main entrances got this kind of fences. 

Here the entrance seen in the direction of the Stadhouderskade. I dedicate this post to Friday Fences where you can find more.
