What number of suggestive corners we admire, one higher than the opposite, a steady postcard. The information, which we hear via the earphones they offered us (included within the ticket worth), tells attention-grabbing tales concerning the metropolis of Amsterdam. Like, for instance, of the sloping homes, constructed on this strategy to permit, via a pulley on the roof, to move furnishings or items into the home with out damaging the facade.
