Gable stones

Two gable stones from Amersfoort: These three rings are from the beer brewery Drie Ringen (Three Rings) in the Drieringensteeg..

.. and D Gulde Vysel ('De Vergulde Vijzel' or 'The Gold-Plated Jack-Screw') can be found on one of the walls of Muurhuizen, and must be relating to long ago handicraft business. The homes at this address (Muurhuizen means literally 'Wall homes') are built on the location of the former city-wall.

  1. Gable stones... a phrase I don't think I've heard of before.

  2. The three gold rings are quite elegant on the stone wall! Your header shot is absolutely wonderful, with your motto!

  3. The kind of details I always like...


Don't be shy and leave a comment. I'd love to read what you think!
