KLM オランダ航空 Delft Blue House No.53のモデルになった家の詳細情報
The Herengracht in Amsterdam is 2.4 kilometres in length and has 536 houses.
The house at Herengracht 203 was built during the early period in which the ring of canals was being constructed and is one of the original buildings. It has a wide stepped gable and was built in 1618 following the allocation of the land. The appearance of Renovatum 1920 in the top of the gable refers to the restoration conducted in 1920. The building is made up of front and back sections. Of special interest is the beautiful wall shielding the privy, the forerunner of the toilet, located in the courtyard. The building is currently accommodating the NIBE-SVV: ‘Nederlands Instituut voor het Bank-, Verzekerings- en Effectenbedrijf’, the knowledge institute and publisher for the Dutch banking, insurance and investment industry.
