mainufo, do you know why it is called "Holländer Windmühle"? Were people brought in (immigrants perhaps) from Holland to reclaim wet lands? It would be interesting to know the history.
Hi Wilf, Holländer Windmühle means the construction of this kind of mill. Whereas the German "Bockwindmühle" turns totally into the wind the Holländer turns only the head with the wings into the wind. On this photo only the green top is turning, the rest of the mill ist fixed on the earth. Of course the Holländer is the more efficient typ of mill. No wonder, the Dutch know more about this topic than oters. They used the Holländer not only to mill grain but also to pump water from land under the sea level into the sea.
The Germans and others learned from the Dutch and copied their mills. There had been also some immigrantion from the Netherlands in many parts of Germany, England and other parts of the world. Especially in East Anglia there are many areas with former wetlands, where Dutch immigrants build canals and windmills. The wellknown Mr. Vancouver, born in this region, has obviously a Dutch name.
Thanks mainufo. There is a region just outside of Vancouver - Pitt Meadows - that was successfully worked, sans windmills, (Pitt Polder) by Dutch immigrants.
Pitt Meadows is a wonderful country, Wilf. It looks a little bit like the Netherlands. The delta of Fraser River and Pitt River is obviously a similar landscape.
