Dear TE Friends! This is my 1000th photos. Many thanks for your comments and useful advices.
Unbelievable how many beautiful and interesting places I had discovered on this site during 4 year. Thank You!!
The aim of founding the Szentendre Open Air Museum was to present folk architecture, interior decoration, farming and way of life in the Hungarian language area from the 2nd half of the 18th century to the 1st half of the 20th century, through original and authentic objects, relocated houses arranged in old settlement patters. The more and more elaborate settlement plan appropriates the relocation of more than 400 edifices into the museum, arranged into village-like regional units on the basis of ethnographical considerations.
Great Plain region
The Great Hungarian Plain is generally considered as the typical Hungarian region. The best known Hungarian words all over the world – puszta, csárda, betyár, gulyás, paprika – have theri origins here. Specific natural formations of this territory are the bleak flatland with its alkaline soil, the mirage, the sand drift, or the shallow waters and thick reeds providing home for a colourful birds.
The geographical units of the Great Plain are situated between the rivers Danube and Tisza, the Trans-Tisza territory and the Banat. Its middle regions thickly interspersed with small villages were on the course of campaigns and lost their population several times during the middle ages.
The development of market towns in the plains started in the 14-15th centuries. The Turkish occupation and later the liberating fights in the whole region resulted in the repeated destruction and large number of emigrants. Resettlement of the depopulated areas began in the 1730s. The new immigrants arrived mainly from the northern part of the historic Hungary; most of them were Slovakians but German-speaking settlers also came from the provinces of the German Empire.
Oral tradition says that the mill stood originally in the Miskei-Puszta, until Pál Facskó bought it and built it up in Dusnok. The inscription incised in the big cogged wheel informs us about the most important data: 1888 május 6 a Holkovics János csinálta Facskó Pál (6 May 1888, Holkovics János made it - translation). The support beam of the shaft of the same wheel, however, displays the year 1885, which means either that the mill had been built during a longer period or that the parts came from several places. After the death of Pál Facskó the mill passed into the hands of Imre Bogárdi and Mátyás Ambrus. They sold it to János Koprivánacz in 1926. He tried his luck in America at the beginning of the 20th century and when he resettled, he bought the mill with the money saved in America. He hoped for making a good living with the mill. At the beginning the mill yielded a profit, but was soon left behind because it could not compete with mills with modern technology. After the death of János Koprivánacz, his brother Peter inherited the mill. The communists prohibited the operation in the mill in 1950 and after this year, milling took place illegally and later the mill was used as dwelling house.
Depending on the wind, the mill ground 12-8 metric centners of wheat a day. The sail turned 10-3 times in a minute and the grinding stone turned 8,8 times with each rotation of the sail. (Source: skanzen.hu)

Good Morning George,
First, congratulaltions on your longevity, and dedication to this site. Although you say you have discovered much, you have supplied much in equal proportions.
My immediate association with windmills, is Holland, although the topography immediately suggests that the land is not Dutch.
The evening sunlight has cast a lovely, warm glow over the buildings and long, sleepy shadows in the field.
Nice composition, with the building well placed in the frame.
Have a lovely Sunday,

Jééé Szentendrén is van szélmalom? Csak nem a Skanzenben? Még soha nem jártam ott, egyszer azt hiszem szerét kellene ejtenem...
Hűha... 1000 fotó... nem semmi... gratulálok. Nnna ez a kép jó. Igazán nem akartalak megbántani a kép kritizállásával, de azt gondoltam és -olom, hogy, ha kritika, akkor kritika... :-) Merhogy azér' vagyunk, hogy ócskázzuk egymás képeit:-)
Komolyabban: én sem tudom mikor milyen a kép, mert 3 gépet használok, egy 15,6 collos fényes LCD-s ACER-t, egy 24 collos BENQ-t, és egy hagyományos 17 collos LCD panelt... és hát tudod... ahány monitor, annyiféle. Leginkább a böhöncét szeretem, azon elég jó nagyításban jönnek elő a dolgok és szerintem, a színe is szép. Tövvnyire azon dolgozom. Az Acerrel próbálkoztam, na ott aztán volt is nagy rendetlenség, mert az ostt készült képek bizony nagyon silányak lettek. Tehát nehéz okosnak lenni. Amúgy - a Te rábeszélésedre - már piszkálom a képeket kisebb-nagyobb sikerrel, az eredményt láthatod. Amúgy minden fotót kimásolok eredeti méretben az asztalra, elvégzem a szerintem megfelelő vacakolást és csak azután kicsinyítem le. És még így sem garantált a siker. Na lapozzunk is...
Tehát mégeygszer grtaulálok, az ezreshez, sokáig legyél itt és lássam a képeket:-)
Szép napot, itt mindjárt megint leszakad az ég.

Lovely rural old time feeling here. Of course the windmill catches most of the attention, it's big and in good condition. Well working sidelight.
Congratulations for the #1000! Not many ever achieve that.
