In the center we now see a tiny square, the sides of which are only 1.5 millimeters
in width (abbreviated 1.5 mm.). It clearly represents the illustration two pages
before: #1. The child (1) in it is barely visible, but the cars (2) can easily be distinguished
and the whale (3) shows up nicely in its full length of some 30 meters,
which is about the record length these fellow-mammals reach. The U-shaped
building (4) tells a story of the war years, when the German military built it during
the occupation of the Netherlands. After the liberation it was rebuilt and enlarged
to become the central building for the Werkplaats Children's Community.
The long building (5), typical of Holland, is a bicycle shed. Note that the number
of each picture corresponds with the exponent of the power of 10 in the
statement of the boldface line below each caption giving the scale.
1 cm. in picture = 1,000 cm. = 10 m. ||Scale = 1:1000 = 1:103|
