Brug Eenenvijftig – Bridge 51 | Map and location

Brug 51 kaart en locatie
Bridge 51 is located in the northern quay of the Leliegracht and spans the Keizersgracht. It is flanked by bridges 52 (west) and 53 (east), both in the quays of the Keizersgracht, which lie across the Leliegracht.
There has been a bridge here for centuries. On the map of Balthasar Florisz. van Berckenrode from 1625 a bridge with five passageways was drawn in the Lely Graft over the Keysers Graft. However, the map with the plot division to the south of the Leliegracht between Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht from around 1618 also showed a bridge (five arches). However, Joan Blaeu drew a bridge with three passageways on his map from 1649. In 1748 Cornelis Pronk painted three passages during the solar eclipse of July 25, 1748. A few years later at Jan Schouten again five.
