Small guy's Turret in Belgium on picture(001127)

After Frits Schetsken : 'Turrets which rise above the houses. On top, they have a corbling out place with typically 8 windows under a pointed roof.

There are interesting explanations... One of those is that the children had to go sit upstairs to watch whether their father's boat was approaching via the river Scheldt... Another one thinks their name comes from the Spanish word ‘pagadores’ (pay masters) who would have lived in those houses...

The truth is less romantic, it are just house towers, on the lower level there are the stairs and on top a place to have a nice look over the city. This also explains why there a not only windows towards the river side.... .'
