Townhall of De Rijp built by Jan Adriaanszoon Leeghwater in 1630
Netherlands, De Rijp, May 2008

Note the "leaning over" of the two facades. At the time, it was a sign of superiority.

The leaning over had another purpose too: when you hoisted up pieces of furniture or whatever goods they would not clash into the windows or against the gable...
Great picture of this beautiful townhall and thew bridge!
