mills Molen Magazine databases of Belgium and French mills

I have linked to Molen Magazine before, but since it's all written in Dutch or Flemish its most frustrating seeing the information there, but not being able to understand it, so I've not revisited for a while. (There are occasional English "translations" provided for small sections, but these are obviously machine generated, and generally as impenetrable as the original language).

On a recent visit however, I notice that they have newly added "databases" of mills in Belgium and France. These databases are rather strange in that they are provided as numerous pages via a photo hosting service, which unfortunately means there is no apparent way to search the "database", but browsing brings with it its own pleasures. There are separate pages for post mills, complete tower mills, ruined or converted windmills, and watermills, within each of the regions covered.

Also of interest for browsing on the site are the Old postcards pages.
