Then and now 6: Ivens

























































The grandfather of world-famous cinematographer Joris Ivens (see Heydepark above) was Wilhelm Ivens, important photographer in Nijmegen in the 19th century.
I found these two pictures: the 1155 St. Martin's chapel, the so-called Barbarossa ruin, and the 1885 bridge nearby. The bridge was destroyed by a truck, years ago, but is now at last repaired;
the Palatinate was demolished two centuries ago and we are still thinking about that.

1976 HB Distagon 60mm
