Out: to the Netherlands
'Utrecht, zomer 1902, Minrebroederstraat 9'.
De wijzers van de klok van de Domtoren. Voor een Utrechtse postcrosser die van klokken houdt. (Al weet ik niet zeker of incomplete klokken ook gewenst zijn!..)
'Utrecht, summer 1902, Minrebroeder street, 9'.
For a postcrosser who lives in the city of Utrecht and who loves clocks. (Although I'm not sure whether incomplete clocks would be appreciated, too, or not!..)
The text says: "The clockwork and it's clock striking work and the 4 clock hands works were repaired in my house and were cleaned in the end of July and during the whole month of August 1902. W.J.C. Haak, municipal clock repairer".
The clock hands are of the Dom Tower; the length of the minute hand is 3.75 meters, the hour hand measures 2,88 meters.
On the stamp sheet a few more clocks, in the city of Schoonhoven.
