This romantic painting of the city of Kampen by Dutch master Cornelis Springer (1817-1891) dating back to 1861 is not really my style, so why post it? Because this is the almost unchanged view we have the moment we step out of our new house/shop in Kampen into the main shopping street! The main thing that has changed is that the trees are no longer there. We will move into our new home in May - we are looking forward to it! More on Springer in the wikipedia article linked to below.
