Façades of The Hague #107

In 1902 the border between the municipalities of The Hague and Loosduinen (now part of The Hague) was moved to the southwest because of the explosive growth of the population of The Hague. From 1903 onward houses were built between Beeklaan and Valkenboskade for civil servants and better paid labourers.

This block of houses, at Valkenboskade, was built before World War I, when, since 1875, the number of inhabitants of the city had tripled in size. The block has a strong rhythm of bay windows, of which some have changed a bit through the decades.
