The Anchor Forge
In 1562–63, Frederick II of Denmark built an anchor forge for Holmen, which was placed on the other side of the canal. The building was atypically shaped, as special consideration was given not to spoil the view from the king's castle, Christiansborg. The actual forge was hidden behind a taller building, called the tower, which was given a handsome front in Italian style facing the castle, and which was erected by Peter de Dunckers.
Famous quotes containing the words forge and/or anchor:
“... patriarchy creates megapatterns that affect us alleven as we forge different individual choices within themjust as do the megapatterns of nationalism or racism.”
—Gloria Steinem (b. 1934)
“A mans real faith is never contained in his creed, nor is his creed an article of his faith. The last is never adopted. This it is that permits him to smile ever, and to live even as bravely as he does. And yet he clings anxiously to his creed, as to a straw, thinking that that does him good service because his sheet anchor does not drag.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
