607. Katwijk aan Zee, Sluizen


Dear Sigrid,

The Villa Allegonda is showed in this old picture postcard
near to the flag pole. This house, considered by some critics
as an early example of "cubist architecture" was in fact an
echo of African vernacular architecture that Menso
Kamerlingh Onnes tried to imitate.

Regards.
