Photographer's Note

Leiden is a university town since 1575. By 1600 it was the biggest city after Amsterdam. It is also the birthplace of Rembrant, on July 15th, 1606.

This windmill is called "De Put", after the owner of the mill that stood on this very spot in the 17th century. It was only at that century that people started to build windmills on riverbanks.
