An old windmill in it's last hours of light

De Adriaan is a windmill in the Netherlands that burnt down in 1932 and was rebuilt in 2002. The original windmill dates from 1779 and the mill has been a distinctive part of the skyline of Haarlem for centuries.

 

The windmill was built on the foundations of the Goevrouwetoren by Adriaan de Booys, an industrial producer from Amsterdam. The Goevrouwetoren, or Goede Vrouwtoren (Goodwife Tower), had been the northern support of the city's Catrijnenpoort, a defencework over the River Spaarne. By the late 18th century, the gate was redundant due to the expansion of the city, and de Booys bought the tower and the land around it from the municipality of Haarlem on April 24, 1778. By reinforcing the foundations with wooden supporting poles, the mill was built to 34 metres above the level of the river, and above the surrounding city. De Adriaan was officially opened on May 19, 1779.

 

De Booys was granted permission to build a windmill to produce cement, paint, and tanbark. The windmill was built under the supervision of miller Henricus Ruijsch from Waddinxveen. De Booy earned the concession to be the sole producer of cement in the city for 25 years.

 

De Booys sold the windmill to Cornelis Kraan in 1802. The monopoly on cement had not been as lucrative as De Booys had hoped for; a competitor evaded the law by importing cement from Dordrecht. The windmill was sold for 1650 guilders, and Kraan converted the mill into a tobacco mill, to produce tobacco snuff. Kraan already owned a tobacco shop, at the Grote Houtstraat.

 

In 1865 a steam engine was placed in the windmill by the then owner, J. van Berloo, but this was not a commercial success. In 1925 the windmill was bought for 12,100 guilders by the Dutch windmill society Vereniging De Hollandsche Molen to prevent demolition.

"Molen De Adriaan"

 

De Adriaan was opened on May 19th 1779. The windmill is built along the river "Spaarne", at that time at the border of Haarlem. The windmill was built on a existing foundation of the tower "Goevrouwetoren". This tower was part of the old rampart of Haarlem. Because it was built on the old foundation, the windmill was high and could catch a lot of wind. The windmill was burned down to the ground and rebuilt.

 

De Adriaan werd geopend op 19 mei 1779. De windmolen staat aan de rivier het Spaarne, toentertijd aan de rand van de stad. De molen werd gebouwd op de bestaande funderingen van de vroegere Goevrouwetoren (Goede Vrouwentoren). De Goevrouwentoren maakte deel uit van het oude vestingwerk rond Haarlem. Doordat de molen boven op de fundering van de toren gebouwd werd, stond de molen hoog en ving daarmee veel wind. De molen is helemaal afgebrand en weer opnieuw opgebouwd.

The windmill "De Adriaan" stands in a curve of the river Spaarne. It's a replica from 2002 of the original windmill from 1779. That one was destroyed by fire in 1932.

De Haarlemse molen ‘De Adriaan’ brandde op 23 april 1932 af maar staat sinds november 2000 weer fier op zijn oude plek aan het Spaarne. Op 23 april 2002, dus precies 70 jaar na de brand, is de molen heropend.

 

De Adriaan is a windmill in the Netherlands that burnt down in 1932 and was rebuilt in 2002. The original windmill dates from 1779 and the mill has been a distinctive part of the skyline of Haarlem for centuries.

 

De Adriaan was built on the foundations of the Goevrouwetoren, or Goede Vrouwtoren (Goodwife Tower), a tower that used to be part of the city's defences. The towers were located on the river Spaarne, on each side, and historically they were defending the city from possible attackers over the water. The Goevrouwetorenr was demolished in 1779 to make way for the windmill, as the towers were no longer useful for the defence of the city. The city border had moved to the north, and building on the foundations of the old tower would make it easy to build the windmill as high as possible, which would be efficient to catch wind. De Adriaan was officially opened on May 19, 1779.

 

Een foto als deze zou vóór een fikse regenbui onmogelijk zijn geweest, het thema van deze week. Hoewel molen De Adriaan altijd fotogeniek is, voegen reflecties in plassen nét dat beetje extra toe. Vandaag was het licht bovendien prachtig. Mooi licht en reflecties; een onweerstaanbare combinatie.

Ursprünglich 1778 errichtet, nach einem Brand 1932 zerstört und erst ca. 70 Jahre danach wieder errichtet.

For the first time in 19 years the Spaarne river completely froze up; a little bit down the river it was a skating paradise
