Two more architects

New pages about two more architects; J.H. Tonnaer and P.J. Soffers, both architects of catholic churches. The page about Tonnaer has a nice basic biography and a list of his churches in the Netherlands and Belgium. Soffers is a big mystery, because despite his long list of more than 30 churches and his obvious great importance, virtually nothing is known about him. A tentative page that I hope to expand to a higher level some day.

First updates of 2017

Happy new year! And what a nice start of the year I have for you.

Almost by tradition, the 1st of January in the Netherlands is the date when former municipalities merge into a new bigger one. This year this happened to the municipalities of Schijndel, Sint-Oedenrode and Veghel in the Noord-Brabant province. A good opportunity to transform the old Veghel page, add pictures of the churches in Sint-Oedenrode and call the new page Meierijstad. Sorry, no pictures of places in the former Schijndel municipality yet.

Also, two more pages about architects, W.Th. van Aalst and J.J.M. van Halteren

En natuurlijk wens ik alle lezers die liever de Nederlandstalige pagina's bezoeken ook een gelukkig nieuw jaar. En voor hen de mededeling dat er een nieuwe tweetalige pagina is over de gloednieuwe gemeente Meierijstad die niet alleen de oude (alleen Engelstalige) pagina over Veghel vervangt maar ook kerken in Sint-Oedenrode bevat.
