Photos of the Netherlands in 1906

There is, now and again, and I must admit this, a certain stuffiness to the public domain texts I help save at Project Gutenberg. Luckily, we have started making illustrated HTML versions since recently, which helps alleviate the stuffiness.

And sometimes, the pictures alone are worth it. If you look past the fact that the photos portray the Dutch in full blast sentimentalist touristy view, the kick-ass portraits in Door Holland met pen en camera (choose the HTML,None version) make the ebook well worth checking out.
