I did not fully gather at which stage was the mill named Aurora. At some point of time, an electric motor had also been installed. In the nineten hundred twenties and thirties, it provided some additional revenues. It would have helped that a railway line then passed closeby, over the relatively flat landscape.

Il est très beau aussi vu ainsi.
Ayush Basu: Merci, Martine.
A wonderful machine/house...
Ayush Basu: I certainly thought so, Larry.

it looks like a tiny house
Ayush Basu: It was a bit cramped up there, Sherri, as I found out myself.
Very nice.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Michael.
Il est superbe et peu ordinaire. Superbement conservé également.
Bonne journée Ayush
Ayush Basu: You are very right, Pascale. This is in good shape and perfectly working condition.

This rear view is interesting Ayush, it shows how the thing is put together
Ayush Basu: I find it amazing that whole box structure weighing about 35 tonnes can rotate about the central post, Chris.

This view gives a good sense of these things as machines Ayush.
Ayush Basu: It was a thoroughly fascinating place both inside and outside, and the volunteer miller was kind with his added inputs, Chad.
looks like it's been converted to a lovely apartment smile
Ayush Basu: It was a bit cramped up there, Elain, for your new monitor grin

This back view is even more interesting than the front. I like the verandah especially.
Ayush Basu: Not a whole lot of space there but millers are used to that, Alan, and a fairly unblocked view from there all around.

This mill doesn't look like the typical Dutch mill, but more like the Belgian ones I have seen recently. Great picture.
Ayush Basu: It is funny you should mention that since I myself had a similar question, especially since Venlo is in the south of the Netherlands, Louis.
This is a very fine windmill Ayush. Clearly well maintained
Ayush Basu: It was a thoroughly fascinating place both inside and outside, and the volunteer miller was kind with his added inputs, Bill.

Is it known to be windy there, Ayush?
Ayush Basu: When I looked closely, only 2 of the 4 possible sails were unfurled and yet the vanes were humming along, so I imagine on other days with lesser wind, all 4 sails could be still employed and keep the mill running, Ray.
This sounds silly but it is like some of our mills but at the same time is different, what a lovely thing.
Ayush Basu: I imagine what you mean, Brian. I think I may be able to look at one in Belgium.

It's great to see it's still in action
Ayush Basu: They are conserved in the Netherlands and about a thousand of them survive in various levels of health, Anne.
Another handsome structure!
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Tom!
Magnifique !!!
Quelle belle creation et surtout imagination !
This somehow reminds me of a whirlygig toy with all moving parts, the building parts spinning too.
