Foto Vrijdag: Pietas

Rainy Day Sunday

Taken last Sunday on our slightly damp walk home. There was a lovely rose-gold glow to the sky after the last rain shower, and I thought this corner looked particularly lovely. The building was built in 1904 for Pietas Life Insurance Company. The architect was Jacques A van Straaten Jr., who also worked on the restoration of Kasteel de Haar.

For a bit of Time Travel, here’s a photo of the building from 1906, just two years after it was built.
