The Netherlands - Rotterdam - Delft Gate (Delftsche Poort)
The Netherlands - Rotterdam - Delft Gate (Delftsche Poort) - built in 1764 to a design by architect Pieter de Swart. Dismantled in 1939 due to an enlargement of the port - however the removed stones were damaged irreparably by bombing during WW2. There is now a steel frame artistic reconstruction of the gate (the Nieuwe Delftse Poort), constructed in 1995. Date: 1903
