Paradox through the eyes of Google



Around 1800 ad, French soldiers occupied Amsterdam.
It is known that the soldiers were stationed in this building, along with the horses, since it was also one of the many stables to keep the horses of Napoleon’s army. It is known.
At later time this building, and a few buildings next to it, did service as a firedepartment. This building was used as a stable for the horses.
You can still find traces of the stable that comes from that period.
A few houses next to the shop, you will see a high slim building that is significantly higher then the rest.
