    Straelen (NRW), old town houses

    by egonwegh Updated Sep 10, 2013

    We made a short tour through the town centre in search of old houses - maybe some of my ancestors lived here in past centuries. Or else the street pattern should be familiar to them, the orientation of today's streets (and perhaps even some of the names) must be quite similar to what it used to be in the 16th century.

    Straelen (NRW), Puppets fountain

    by egonwegh Updated Oct 17, 2007

    Jennie hugging a bishop at the local puppets fountain - we'd seen a similar fountain in Aachen, where it's called the Puppenbrunnen, so I wasn't at all surprised to find one here.

    Straelen (NRW), tomb stone next to church

    by egonwegh Updated Oct 17, 2007

    Tomb stone in upright position leaning against the facade of the local church, St. Peter and Paul. Very peculiar - notice the black hands and the black head at the bottom. I couldn't find any name on the stone, but thought I could recognize the word 'semper' (always)
