Snidsen from the east
The view, as seen from the rear of our little ship, of one of the numberless charming alleys – named ‘Fnidsen’, once the most important shopping-street of Alkmaar. Interesting information about this name is to be found, again, in Wikipedia’s page https://nl.wikipedia.
Snidsen from the west
org/wiki/Fnidsen. Only in Dutch, so perhaps Google Translate offers a solution for the most curious among you. The second picture is the view from Fnidsen towards our ship which is partly visible – as if to prove that we didn’t lie about our position for almost three days.
This stylish orphanage was built in 1818 in neoclassical style after Alkmaar's master carpenter(!) Willem Hamer. Hamer = hammer, very appropriate for a carpenter. Having said that, during...
...(or just after) the Napoleonic era one had to choose a family name – so one’s profession was an obvious choice. Hamer was born in Amsterdam and Alkmaar’s city architect for many years.

Leuke route door Noord Holland. Henny heeft vanuit Zandvoort die provincie goed leren kennen op zijn Harley. Overigens nooit bij die vrienden in de Woude op bezoek geweest. 😂
