Photographer's Note

The Cruquius Steam pump station was commisioned in 1847 along with two other pump stations, to pump dry the Haarlemmer meer for land reclamations.
The pumpstation could move 320 000 liter of water pr. minute. Today the station is a museum showing the water reclamation in holland, and the pump is now driven by hydraulics rather than steam, but visitors can still see the pumps working.
