Dordt in Stoom 2006

Every two year in Dordrecht we've a festival about steam, it's called "Dordt in Stoom". The harbour is full of steamships and the quays full of steam engines, cars, tractors and other vehicles. This picture is taken in May 2006. The weather wasn't nice but it was a great happening. At the back you see the tower of "De Grote Kerk" of Dordrecht. Dordrecht is an old town south of Rotterdam. The town is situated on an island between several rivers in the delta of Holland. History goes back to almost 1200.
