The first of a group of four photographs my father
took in Edam on 11 August 1958 from much the same position, on a wide
bridge crossing the canal alongside which runs Voorhaven. On the north
side is the Edam museum (second building from the left), built as a
merchant's house around 1540 with a floating cellar, and converted to a
museum in 1895.
