Netherlands, Zaanse Schans, Jan. 2011

De Gekroonde Poelenburg (The Crowned Poelenburg) is a paltrok mill in Zaandam, which has been restored to working order. As all Dutch paltrok mills it is a windpowered sawmill. The mill is listed as a Rijksmonument and located at the Zaanse Schans in a group of several historic industrial windmills: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_Gekroonde_Poelenburg,_Zaandam

Thanks all for the nice comments and the favourites, very much appreciated!

At first, I thought that there was a smiley face on the windmill. How wonderful to see it restored.
