The Market of Delft and the City Hall

It was a rainy day on the market of Delft. The city hall looked a bit dark against the grey sky. The town hall is decorated with marble statues and golden symbols. Traders are selling there souvenirs on the market square of the Dutch historical town. In the background you see the “New Church – Nieuwe Kerk”. Also shops sell souvenirs like clumps, windmills, tulips and Delfts Blue Ceramics (mostly factory products).

Het was een regenachtige dag op de markt van Delft. Het stadhuis leek wat donker tegen de grijze lucht. Het is versierd met marmeren beelden en gouden symbolen. Marktventers trachten hun producten aan de man te brengen op het plein van deze historisch Nederlandse stad. Op de achtergrond zie je de “Nieuwe Kerk”. De winkels verkopen ook souvenirs zoals klompen, tulpen, windmolens en Delfts Blauw porselein (het meeste is machinaal gemaakt)..
