Canal houses are brought into the limelight, for their architecture, their residents, their gardens, their unique history. Thousands of Amsterdammers pass in review: artists and architects, whalers and sugar refiners, writers and poets, burgomasters and bankers, slavers and radical agitators.
The title is appearing simultaneously in Dutch as De grachten van Amsterdam.
