Thursday Doors – Doors with a history

Het Swanenburghs Hofje

My twenty-seventh entry to Norms Thursday Doors. Doors with a history. But. This door is no door at all … Sorry! I developed the image (digital processing is also developing. Sort of anyway) made the post and published it. And then realised: this is no door.

It’s a gate. But a very old gate and access to a lot of doors because a ‘Hofje’ is an enclosed living community. Founded in 1692. So for this week I stick to it 🙂 You have to believe me on the hugh amount of doors inside. It is not appreciated to make pictures inside.

Somehow it sounds familiar (remember I’m Dutch), but I can’t place the location! My guess is people still live here? love the old look:) Have a great weekend!
