Photographer's Note

I mentioned in my last post, the explosion in the magazine storehouse in Delft in 1654 destroying much of the city. It was then decided to build the new storage outside the city and along the river bank. Cycling from Vlaardingen to Delft along the river we past and for the first time went inside to take a look. This is the main gate built in 1660, In the WS you can see a detail of the coat of arms above which clearly shows the kegs of explosives imported from China. (EDIT) I can't seem to upload a WS so you'll have to look closely .
Today the facility is used by a scouting group.
