This weekend, I was in the neighborhood of Radio Kootwijk, so I took advantage of that opportunity to take some photos of Radio Kootwijk gebouw A ("building A"). This is the site of a big shortwave radio transmitter that allowed the Netherlands to keep in contact with Indonesia, which was a colony of the Netherlands at that time. The time being the 1920s. I love this kind of art deco architecture.
The building was inspired by a sphinx.
There's a face sculpted above the front entrance.
On the other side, there's an eagle.
The building is really in the middle of nowhere, as far as Holland has any of that.
When I was there four years ago, it was cloudy with the sun behind the building, so I couldn't get any decent pictures. Too bad they removed the picnic table, though.
