No, I am not lost! And now you won’t get lost in Rotterdam anymore either :-), this is the first (road) signpost for the ANWB in the Netherlands! Around 1885 the first ANWB signpost appeared in the Netherlands on the corner with Hoflaan in line with the Kortekade where the Oudedijk becomes the ‘s-Gravenweg. The pole pointed the road to Rotterdam (4 km to the west then), Utrecht, Gouda and Schiedam. This is a replica in the garden of the Dutch Reformed Church on Hoflaan, the former driveway from Oudedijk to Slot Honingen (destroyed in the Eighty Years’ War).
