  The "Groote Societeit" in a classic building
by Pavlik_NL

Watching over the harbour from the Western side is a large classical building with high windows and a fine decorated roof with chaple in the middle. This is the "Groote Societeit", something that can be compared with, with the men's club's in London of about a century ago. Elite, rich men, had here relaxing time in discussion, reading papers or just talks about every day life, while smoking a sigar and drinking a glass of cognac.
