It is a lovely find, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ray.
This is far from black Friday Ginnie... you find the most remarkable things to photograph....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I decided I didn't want to find anything worthy of that day, Peter, so I'm sticking with the boats. HA! Thank you.

I love it that you find all these wonderful gable stones. This is almost like a painting from the Dutch Masters. I love the symmetry.
Ginnie Hart: You know me and these stones...I love finding them. They aren´t usually plumb or square when inlaid, which drives me crazy, but I guess that´s part of their charm???
What a find Ginnie! I love it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. I love these old gable stones, as you know!

Ik weet niet wat een 'klynschipper' mocht zijn, een kleine schipper? A golden looking Gild Huys - beautiful! I wish you a wonderful, colourful journey to Koblenz and the big rivers- do you visit Festung Ehrenbreitstein?
Ginnie Hart: Astrid says it someone´s name, Philine...and yes, we´re taking the skylift tomorrow to the Festung Ehrenbreitstein. YAY.

Well, by the spelling, it is very old. 16yj or 17th century.
My guess is that it was the guild house for small boat skippers. Those who serviced the big boats at sea. But that is just a guess.
Ginnie Hart: It's probably a good guess, Louis.
Makes a great Boat Friday Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Janet.

Belle trouvaille
JP
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.
a nice find, Ginnie. i like the panorama crop for this - really focusses the attention on the gable stone.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. It seemed the only way to go this time around. Have you noticed that very few Dutch gable stone are plumb??!
