This copper engraved view shows one of the major gates into the old city of Amsterdam. The scene is filled with activity as a crowd enters into the city. A bridge spans a canal and two windmills appear in the distance. The title is on a ribbon-style cartouche.
Attractive color on watermarked paper with some marginal soiling and damp stains at the top corners that do not enter into image.
