This bridge was the furthest one captured
by the allies during WWII

They were unable to capture the next bridge
"the bridge too far"

This is how shops advertised when people couldn't read.
Products from India were sold here
These "half lace curtains" were once a religious requirement
so your neighbors could check on your behavior. Now its just tradition.
People do not decorate the exterior of their houses for Christmas
Note that everything is legal here
Nijmegen is one of the oldest towns in Holland
The mural below commemorates a medieval industry (fabric dying)
and the workers' fingers which were permanently stained

The town center's medieval architecture survived WWII
