windmills Three industrial windmills at Zaanse Schans

This recent photo of Zaanse Schans shows the row of 3 windmills on the river bank - De "Gekroonde Poelenburg" (a paltrok mill for sawing wood), "De Kat" for paint production, and "De Zoeker" which extracts oil from nuts. This photo, and another one concentrating on De Kat were taken in May 2004.

Searching on the TrekEarch site for windmill and windmills turns up a number of other good images, thankfully dominated by traditional windmills, not as so often happens by wind engines or wind turbines.
