Nieuwe Toren

The Nieuwe Toren (New Tower) is located at the Oudestraat in the city of Kampen. This Carillon tower was built in the period between 1649-1664 partly according to a design by Philips Vingboons.

The lower brick-built part was erected by the Edam mill maker (Master carpenter) Dirck Janzn. The design for the lantern was made by Philips Vingboons, which may have originally been intended for the Town hall now the Royal Palace of Amsterdam. The construction work went through many setbacks, the work even came to a standstill during the period 1655-1660.

Some nice symmetry (is that the right word) :)) going on here Karin with the long brown grass, the road, the green grass and the river. Makes for a really good shot. Should have more Yellow star in my opinion. L-YS.
