  Windmills on the Zaansche Schans
by carolineraat

Fondest memory: [Molen], windmill, was one of the first words I could say. No wonder, because where I was born there are many! They were used for various purposes, but the most interesting is that they were used to pump lakes and parts of the sea dry in order to make new land!!!

I took this picture on the Zaanse Schans windmill museum.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
