Not a riverside but a canal side Cjlin These where man made to protect the city (in the old days) against an attack. Later on they where used to provide salesman who lived in the houses on the canal with merchandise.

Dat is een goed beeld van het verleden. Ik woon in Bologna (Italië), maar ik kwam naar Utrecht zoveel keer, en ik liep langs deze prachtige gracht. Gefeliciteerd met uw galerij. Ik zag je naam onder de vrienden Teunis na de uitnodiging voor de groep "collage". Welterusten en tot ziens. Mauro

Erik van den Ham on November 5, 2013

Hello Augusto, Aggeliki, Edward, Judit and Mauro Thank you all for the kind comments and visit to this historical image of Utrecht. It was one of the very first colour images. In fact the original pictures where black and white and coloured afterwards.

Warm wishes, Erik
