In the Amsterdam Municipal Archives I have seen the exhibition of the photographer Dolf Toussaint about The Jordaan, a working class quarter of Amsterdam in the 50 and 60's. That's the time I spent my youth in Amsterdam, so it was a trip to memory lane for me.
The man on top has pigeons in baskets, many people used to have carrier-pigeons at their roofs in those days in Amsterdam.
The ladies are beating a stair-carpet, used for the very high stairs in the old Amsterdam houses.
