(y)(y) Extremely cool sir ! 😎😎

It’s astounding seeing, as well as learning about machines like this
that were built years ago like this. I’m always amazed the minds that
had to dream all of them up, and also how they genuinely will keep
things going in a city. Or in society to be more accurate actually. And
whether it’s cereal grains, or various liquids as with you sir, it’s all
remarkable imho. 😀

Have to thank you for all of this terrific insight, as well as history,
along with language lessons !!!
BTW: this elevator is part of the outdoor part of our Maritime museum located in the city centre.

Today we visited Mini World, a permanent HO scale diorama exposition in Rotterdam. Started very modest with a diorama built by who turned out to be the MD from the company my father was once employed. Now a huge diorama (I think the largest of its kind in Europe). I took a couple of pictures and below some Rotterdam landmarks I showed before. I received the tickets as a lottery prize.

Central Station:



City Hall:



Hotel New York:



Erasmus Bridge, AKA 'The Swan". The bridges in front of the picture are demolished and replaced by this bridge:



Cube houses:

Well these is neat sir, along with out of this world too honestly ! 😎😉

It’s funny Frans, because at first when I saw the very first picture, I
was thinking how perfect everything looked. 😀 But I was thinking
it was just another excellent look at the city. ..Then a second later
got the gist of what you were showing to us. 😊 And it’s just terrific
to see the incredible detail in every single diorama. ..I swear the
sheer detail is breathtaking, just like the actual city itself.

Oh, and love how there are even people all over enjoying this mini
Rotterdam ! (y)(y) Even the vehicles, as well as water are exceptional.

Wow, just wow, thank you for posting Frans !!!
