entrance of a house for the old age people

This is an entrance of an old people house bult in 1655 . Today in use for a school. The lines tells in old Dutch:
Tot hulp en troost voor man en vrouw
is opgericht dit nieuw gebouw
en ruste ieder hier zijn tijd
en het einde van zijn leven slijt
Translated ; ( improvements welcome )
For the help and comfort of man and women
we buld this new bulding
in here you will rest your time
till the end of you life
Great theme shot

Pyrrhula, this is so neat! The entrance has so many details-- the more I look at it, the more I notice. And the reflection in the window above the door, too. Must fav this to show my architect nephew-in-law.

What great details, wonder if the people then were thankful to go or not? Probably much like today?
