It Wasn’t Always Like This

The view across the canal years ago. From the city’s archives – Stadsarchief Amsterdam

Looking at my latest post – the view across the canal from my room on the top floor – I wondered about the barracks that once stood there when it was home to a cavalerie division.

I went to The Amsterdam Archives online.

I live in one of the houses along the canal. The triangular
tympanum is still there, right across, behind the new apartment blocks.
