Rusty old windmill

Foma Fomapan 100 @ EI 100, developed in HC-110 dilution H for 10 minutes, agitation: 2 inversions every 30 seconds.
Built in 1927, this windmill can pump 175-200 m³ per hour and was intended to keep the floodplains of the River IJssel dry to improve the hay yield in summer. In 1968 the windmill was retired and in 1977 it was decided to be removed but somehow that never was followed up upon. In 2004 it was taken down, but, after the floodplains were turned into a nature preserve, restored and returned to its original position in 2009.
