Brug negentien – Bridge 19 | History and information

The history of bridge 19 in Amsterdam bears a resemblance to that of bridge 18. According to painter Herman Misset, the bridge once bore the year 1791 in the arch, but the drawing is missing a date. Another drawing by him from the period 1891 to 1901 and also a photo by Pieter Oosterhuis from around 1870 show a girder bridge. In 1887 comments were already made about this bridge being too high for traffic. The current bridge dates from July 1977 when, after a few months of work, a new arch bridge with a passage was built.
