Alms houses

Here are a few more pics I never got around to posting. Several centuries ago, before the state took care of the poor, individuals sometimes established housing for those who were homeless. This is an example of some of the "Alms Houses" in Utrecht. It seems fitting for the season to point out examples of kindness from times past.

If you're homeless and thinking of living here, these apartments are now some very pricey real estate - definitely not lived in by the homeless.)
