Quick, what is 2014 less 1839?

Quick, what is 2014 less 1839?
Answer: 175

Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS), or the Dutch Railways, can trace its history back to 1839, when the Hollandsche IJzeren Spoorweg-Maatschappij (HSM) began operations. In September 2014, NS celebrated its 175th anniversary during my visit. On the night that I returned to Amstedam from The Hague, a stage had been set up in Stationsplein in preparation for a celebration the following day. Unfortunately, I was set to visit a Medieval castle, so I didn't see or attend the celebration.

Thank you John! I was actually quite far away from the stage, and AMS CS is very busy, so it was impossible to get a shot without the passers-by. But as you said, the people make the photo interesting, I think!
