If you walk at the Beneden Oostzeedijk you will pass a large complex of houses and shops arose between 1946 and 1949. The architects were E.H. and H. M. Kraaijvanger. Each of the apartment buildings has an inserted ceramic tile panel in the end façade. You can see that in the photo above, just above a shop door. This is a swan, there’s also a fish, a bee and a horse.
