Breskens

Again an archive photo, not special, but I cycled a lot in this region, very nice there
2015 July.

Architect
Quirinus Harder
Quirinus Harder was born in Rotterdam on 13 October 1801 as the son of Johan Frederik Harder, navy chief and Helena Elisabeth van Loon. Johan Frederik's family moved to Vlissingen in 1824. Quirinus also worked there with the navy, first as a clerk and finally as a construction and drawing master.
The "lantern dome"
For the lantern dome and the support of the optics people did not use cast iron but bronze or brass. These materials were more resistant to the changing influence of the cold and salty outdoor environment on the one hand and the heat of the lamps on the other.
Appearance.
The lighthouse of Breskens has an eight-sided conical shape. All lighthouses designed by Harder are different in shape, dimensions and interior. It is clear that Harder paid particular attention to the eventual monumental appearance. He provided his lighthouses with artistic elements. See e.g. the entrance door, the windows, but also the ironwork of the handling of our lighthouse in neo-gothic style. By the way, the windows at our lighthouse have been replaced by portholes. This is to prevent excessive corrosion.
I hope that you enjoy it
