Waddinxveen: Mills along the Zuidkade (South Quay)

This view is taken from the river "de Gouwe" and dates back to approximately 1910. The two mills shown here were used for making paper. The one on the left is called "de Nijverheid" (Industry) and the one on the right is called "de Hoop" (Hope) Both mills were built in 1651. "de Nijververheid" was demolished in 1932 and "de Hoop" in 1911.
