Thursday Doors – Essential doors

Terminal The Hague Municipal Railway

My twenty-eighth entry to Norms Thursday Doors. Essential doors. That is to say if you are a railway carriage and want to enter the terminal.

The first lines in The Hague were horse drawn. In the first half of the 1880s steam trams appeared. These were rapidly replacing the horsedrawn lines, especially in the longer services such as the line between The Hague and Delft in July 1887, still in service today, but now extended to Scheveningen Noorderstrand. In 06-08-1904 the first electrified line went into service, being line 9 between Plein and Scheveingen Kurhaus. Most of this line is still part of the actual line between Vrederust and Scheveningen Noorderstrand. – bron wikipedia

The picture is taken with a Lumix GH1 and a 14-120 mm lens. Soon to be replaced by a Nikon D750 with a 24-70mm lens:)  ‘Developed’ in Photoshop cc 2016 with settings for Fuji Velvia film to imitate the saturated look en the brilliant colours.

This picture is part of a series I make on ‘Tram 1’ of the The Hague Municipal Railway Line (HTM)

  1. Pleasant memories – lived a few houses down from the Kurhous at the Geversdaynootweg:):) On the back side of the house was the beach, but almost never walked on it, because with good weather, it was overrun by people!

      1. Right, no, I don’t Photoshop. I’m not a photographer, I just take pictures 🙂 Thanks for the offer though — I enjoy yours!
