My father took this photo of Edam
when we were on holiday in Holland in August 1958. The old houses
characterized much of Holland then - probably they still do: I haven't
been back - and of course canals are a feature of the country as a
whole. The photo was taken on his Zeiss Super Ikonta - a prewar camera
which I later used and which was capable of very high quality: I will
post a picture of it and talk about it in a later entry.
