Dutch Courage

If you are Dutch, far away and living in the mid 1950’s (and let’s face it, who isn’t these days) then I think I have some information that will plaster an edam-eating grin on that gorgeous Netherlandic face of yours. It was on this day in 1957 that the Dutch authorities finally saw sense and lifted the ban on driving on a Sunday. No more long painful trudges to church in your best clogs!
