Bridge 52 is located in the western quay of the Keizersgracht and spans the Leliegracht. Seen from the centre just behind this bridge is the Leliesluis. It is flanked by (adjoining) and (on the opposite side of Keizersgracht), spanning the Keizersgracht and the Leliegracht.
There has been a bridge here for centuries. On the map of Balthasar Florisz. van Berckenrode from 1625 is a bridge with three passages drawn over the Lely Graft in the Keysers Graft with the Lely Sluys behind it. However, the map with the plot division south of the Leliegracht between Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht from around 1618 also showed a bridge (five arches). Joan Blaeu , however, drew a bridge with one passage on his 1649 map.
