The Black Pearl

A street in Rotterdam.  A house named the Black Pearl.  
Owner and architect Rolf Bruggnik.
 The only thing I know about Rotterdam is that my great-grandparents were born there.  It is a place I have always wanted to visit just to see if I could still find relatives there. Looks like I might have to plan that trip sooner rather than later.
Owner Rolf Bruggnik renovated (saved) this early 1900s home in a less-than-desirable neighborhood in Rotterdam, Netherlands.  Liking the inky exterior and that old school toilet.
