Delft Y - Yperstraat

Anyone that takes part in the A-Z challenge can tell you the Y is a difficult letter.

At last I found the Yperstraat in Delft. To be honest I had to look where it might be, never heard of Yperstraat, not that such a thing counts for something, but still...

Anyway, Yperstraat. Location in the middle of the inner city:


The name Yperstrtaat comes from the Belgian Textile workers who lived in Delft at the end of the sixteenth century. It was named after the Belgian town Ieper, or Yper. It certainly isn't one of the most beautiful streets in Delft. There are some big autorepair companies and the parking deck is not doing anything beautiful for this street:

  1. It actually doesn't look that bad Han as there are still a number of trees. Much better than a lot of our industrial areas. :)

  3. I don't know Mona Lisa, I did not see it. Maybe thin air in Yperstraat.
    And yes, it has a Swedish singing sound in it, doesn't it?
