When visiting ArtZuid in Amsterdam I couldn't resist to have a look at the place were I have lived in that same neighborhood. At the right part on the second floor I lived with my parents and my brother and sister from my sixth to my twenty two age. I was surprised to see all that green on the facade, we didn't have that at those times. Also the plants on the ground are new to me.
We had a canal along the street and this was the view from our home to the other site.
It was a quiet place without traffic and parked cars and we always played ball games with other children on the street.That parking lot with trees at the left didn't excist in those times.
In cold winters the water became an excellent icerink in front of our house.
As here with my big sister and brother in 1956.
