A visual historical rendition
Have you always wondered what the Herengracht and Keizersgracht looked like around 1750? And what they look like now? The panoramic photographs of the buildings along these canals have been placed above the drawings by Caspar Philips. These drawings were made and published around 1768. See what remains of the old grandeur and how 'innovation' can also lead to deterioration. In a short introduction, information is provided on the formation, history and growth of Amsterdam based on maps.
