Hans, this is a so-called 'standerdmolen'. It is the oldest mill design in the Netherlands.

Thank you Joe. In the Netherlands, there now about 1200 mills left, but a 100 years ago there were more than 10000 mills!

Wonderful shot senna. You will not see many of these in my part of the worlds.

Thank you Seamus. Yes I think that mills are typically Dutch. This year it is the Netherlands "The year of the mill". The government has reserved a lot of money for restauration of mills.

Thank you Anna. I am almost done with my mill pictures, at least the ones that I am satisfied with. This one is number 42. I hope to get more this year.

Peter, this is another mill I re-visited from the link you gave Don James to answer his question about the "Post Mills". From what I can discern from the original size, the whole upper member can be turned into the wind. Upon close inspections of the masts and sail support lattice, I became curious about the sail lattice. It appears to be made of steel rods? I've always assumed the lattice was made from wood. Can you satisfy my curiosity?

Larry, I consulted the Dutch Mill Database where you can find specifications of all Dutch mills. For this particular one, nothing is said about the material of the sail lattice, but I think you are right, it very much looks like steel.
