Canal along the Grimburgwal
Netherlands, Amsterdam, May 2013
In the middle of this picture you see a white gate, the so-called Oudemanhuispoort ("Old Man Gate"). It is the entrance to the main location of the University of Amsterdam. Originally it was a home for Poor Old Men (1601-1880). In 1880 it was taken over by the University. I passed the Old Man Gate many many times!
