Artist's Description

In the middle of the peninsula at the Benedensas, between the outflows of the lock and the sluice, is a whitewashed house.

This was once a working measuring house of Rijkswaterstaat. From 1874 Rijkswaterstaat measured the ebb and flood positions at 75 locations along the Dutch coast. This happened with so-called dip writers, who were set up in houses such as this at Steenbergse Sas.
