The Alblasserwaard (Kinderdijk), The Netherlands
The Kinderdijk windmills in the Alblasserwaard were placed in the 18th century. In 1738, the eight mills belonging to the Hooge Boezem of De Overwaard and in 1740 the eight mills belonging to the Hooge Boezem of De Nederwaard were built. These windmills form the largest group of windmills in the Netherlands and were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997. This original drawing comes with an aluminum BARTH 1125 frame (color silver satin) and is protected with anti-reflective glass.
