A German Watermill

on July 6, 2014

 

ScanThis beautiful card showing a watermill in Germany, comes from Irene. Watermills have been used for millenia as a means of channeling and using the power of water to assist in engineering. The earliest example, found in Greece, dates back to the 3rd century BC. This beauty is amongst many in Germany and Irene tells me she loves to walk past it as it is near to where she lives. Beautiful!
