The below pictures originated from the 1921 photo shoot made in honour of Klaas Pieter Plantinga's 75th birthday. These were kindly provided by Gerrit Herman Plantinga (b. 1929, great-grandson of Klaas Plantinga).
The first, second, third and fifth picture are from the Dijkstraat 7 address; the others might be from Dijkstraat 7, Grootzand 6 or 't Laag 42-44.
