Not all windmills are created equal, especially in Holland, the land of mills.
This is a wipmolen, the oldest type of polder mill in Holland, first built in 1407.
This one is De Blokker, a hollow post mill used for drainage. The 1620 original burned down in 1997 and was restored in 2000.
Seen while at Kinderdijk, Netherlands, 25 December 2010.
