Veghel - 's-Hertogenbosch
Now decorated with (fake-)windows the silos are no longer in use, contrary to the other bank, yes indeed, logically called Zuidkade (South-quay)…
…where commercials are still unloading material to ‘feed’ Veghel’s food-industry. Veghel houses Jumbo, Mars – and much more, animal food included.
Therefore we come back to an everlasting fascination: the confessional. Here’s the one inside this cathedral…
...and this is the first detail, being the seat for the confessor. Rather luxury one could say…
…contrary to the one that has to deal with a much harder life. Knee pads are absolutely advisable.
A booklet describes the (numbered) works of art; this one happens to be 24 – and we still have the booklet. Therefore we can reveal that this is a pedlar…
…and this is a pedlar too, (re)created by Nanda van Alebeek who makes large statue-like puppets, inspired by JB’s works of art. See http://nanda-art.nl/ and be amazed.
Royal Welsh Bridge
The last picture already shows the conspicuous set of new bridges over the river Dieze. The left one is a two lane road bridge. The middle one a single track railway and the one on the right hand side a double track railway. The name of this set of bridges is ‘Royal Welsh Bridge’.
Royal Welsh heroes
After four-and-a-half years of occupation and a heroic liberation battle by the 53rd Welsh Division (now Royal Welsh), the city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch was liberated on 27 October 1944. The Welsh Division lost 146 of their men. In their honour the city named the bridge the Royal Welsh Bridge and displayed all names of the ones that made the ultimate sacrifice. Bye for now.

Jaja, 't schiet op. Maar rustig aan, want de Nijkerkersluis is nog een paar dagen geblokkeerd. (En een 'Vollenhove' zal ik -als ik er aan toe kom- een n toevoegen...)
