This Crane, because that is what it is according to the previous owner, moved from South Africa to the Netherlands in 1980. And even then he was no longer a spring chicken, or spring Crane, whatever you prefer. But he had lived the lovely luxurious expat live in Johannesburg until then. But all good things come to an end (all bad thing as well for that matter, but that is not wat we are talking about here), so there he went, in a 12 foot container on a boat, on it's way to cold and wet Holland. (luckily he had no jetlag upon arrival, since there is no time difference between SA and The Netherlands)
And 1980, it sounds like it was only yesteryear, new and fresh, not that long ago. But just think again, it is already forty years ago. And it shows. He was painted once, if you look carefully you can still see traces of the old colours and paint, but for the most part he has turned grey, which is consistent with his age. Because, do we not all turn grey around 40-50 years old?
