Gouda (NL) - Kort Haarlem neighbourhood

Gouda is a small city of 71,000 in the province of South Holland. It is known for its' cheese, it's gothic city hall, the longest (not tallest) church in the Netherlands and many more. However, this photos are not of the historic city center, but of the bordering Kort Haarlem neighbourhood.

Kort Haarlem is a neighbourhood in Gouda, the Netherlands. It was built in the first half of the twentieth century, mostly pre-WWII.

Picture 1-8 are of another neighbourhood, the Kadebuurt.

1. I parked my bicycle at the railway station, and started walking. On my way, I came across this:

2. A self portrait. And no, I'm not the Hitler bear.

3. In the 1960's a tower block was planted right in the middle of this neighbourhood.

IMO it's not necessary to quote whole pictures... Just to make such short comment?
Please edit it and don't do this anymore.
Anyway it looks like a really nice place
I'm waiting for more pictures

@Jukrapp: It's not necessary to quote all pictures twice
@Inconfidente: Thanks, I took them during the afternoon, appr. 14:00 - 15:00
@Christos-greece: It's not in Haarlem, but a neighbourhood in Gouda called Kort Haarlem
@all: thanks for your comments.

In the Dutch section of the forums I posted the next series of Gouda (the city center - you'll love it!), when I've translated that I will post it here too
