Postcard from Amsterdam

Postcard from Amsterdam

Postcard from Holland is a regular feature on this blog. On Wednesdays I post a card from my collection of vintage postcards. Today: Amsterdam.

The Singel, a canal that once encircled Amsterdam and is now the innermost of the semicircular ring of canals encircling downtown Amsterdam. In the background (near the right edge of the postcard) we can see the Munttoren (Mint Tower).

If you come to Amsterdam, do a boat tour of the canals. You will see that the view on the postcard has not changed much.

I just love old postcards like this, showing off architecture from the good old times. People had style back then, when dressing themselves and when constructing buildings!

This is a great photo. I lived on the Singel for many years nera the Munt Tower.

I left the Netherlands 20 years ago but this brings back sweet memories.
Thanks from an old ÔÇťAmsterdammer
