Photographer's Note

Part of a door in the old quarter of Deventer.
The old Hanseatic town of Deventer lies on the right bank of the IJssel. To the east of Deventer's Brink square, reached by way of Bergstraat, is the Bergkwartier, an old quarter of the town near the banks of the IJssel with a distinct and rather melancholy character of its own. The name is thought to be derived from the local fishermen who sailed to Bergen in Norway. Many old houses with handsome facades have been restored by the firm of Bergkwartier with government subsidies.
