Note that the tulips are a mirrored version of the previous image.

OK, the "river Zaan". I thought you meant a municipality called Zaan, due to a missing preposition.
Hardly anyone knows the Zaan, though; this added to the confusion. It is not a river, BTW, rather a man-made 'waterway', resulting from building several dikes. (Yes, English Wikipedia incorrectly calls it a 'river'. The Dutch version explains it correctly.)
Thanks!

Hey Michael, I ment mills "at river Zaan", Zaan is the river, Zaandam is the city (part of municipality Zaanstad) and Zaanse Schans (german "Schanze") is the location (part of Zaandam) where the mills are.... ;-)

Zaandam, not 'Zaan'.
De Zoeker was built in 1968, Jonge Schaap in 2007(!), "still working"; sure.
