Steenhouwerijbrug history and information
This bridge has a very similar history to including it being a slab bridge at the end of the 19th century because the adjacent , also an arch bridge had collapsed over the Keizersgrachtand again recent renovations converted it to a more aesthetically pleasing arched bridge. The bridge is drawn on the boundary between the built-up area and his design for the new district south of the Leidsegracht. Frederick de Wits map from 1688 shows the bridge in place.
