The Netherlands, Peilhuisje op Wieringen

Posted by
Willem (Noord-Scharwoude, Netherlands) on 27 January 2020 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Rijkspeilschaal uit 1919 zoals Rijkswaterstaat die bij tientallen langs de kust had laten bouwen. In dit huisje werden de standen van eb en vloed in een grafiek gevangen. Daar kwam een ingenieuze constructie met vlotters, tandwielen en een klok aan te pas.

This is a government level scale from 1919 as Rijkswaterstaat had it built at dozens along the coast. The levels of ebb and flow were captured in a graph in this house. An ingenious construction with floats, gears and a clock was used.

Nice little building. In a low lying country, it is essential to monitor the tides.

Mooie compositie en kleuren. Interessante info erbij ook. Hopen dat Rijkswaterstaat dit netjes in stand houdt, een mooi monument.

Bekend huisje!! ;-)
Het huisje is altijd hetzelfde in een steeds wisselende omgeving qua lucht, water en vegetatie. Mooi helder vastgelegd!!
