Lange Jaap

on July 9, 2014

 

Scan 1 - Version 4This cool card from Bo in the Netherlands shows Lange Jaap: the tallest non-skeletal, cast-iron lighthouse in the world. Well now, I bet you didn’t know that! Built in 1878, Lange Jaap is 63 metres tall and believe it or not it has 17 floors and 284 steps! Ouch! Wouldn’t want to work up there!
