This neighborhood was created in the 17th century when immigrants from Wallonia and France settled here. The city council encouraged this development, partly because many people were skilled spinners and weavers. This gave them an opportunity to establish their businesses in small buildings which also served as a residence. You also see here several courtyards and a former Walloon Orphanage. This simple neighborhood for the poor is part of a larger social housing project that was built simultaneously with the canals. The land between Spiegelgracht, Prinsengracht, Reguliersgracht and Lijnbaansgracht was offered for free to charities, which financed the construction of the houses. To keep costs low, Philips Vingboons designed the houses ina a uniform way. There were two storeys above a basement, which were often rented out separately.

Deze buurt ontstond in de 17e eeuw, toen migranten afkomstig uit WalloniĆ« en Frankrijk zich hier vestigden. Het stadsbestuur stimuleerde deze ontwikkeling, mede omdat het veelal vakbekwame lieden betrof zoals wolkammers, spinners en wevers. Zo kregen zij gelegenheid hun bedrijfjes te vestigen in pandjes die tevens als woonhuis fungeerden. Ook vinden we in deze omgeving enkele hofjes en het voormalige Walenweeshuis. -lt;br>-lt;br>Deze eenvoudige buurt maakt deel uit van een groter sociaal woningbouwproject dat tegelijk met de grachtengordel werd aangelegd voor minder draagkrachtigen. -lt;br>-lt;br>De grond tussen Spiegelgracht, Prinsengracht, Reguliergracht en Lijnbaansgracht werd gratis ter beschikking gesteld aan liefdadigheidsinstellingen, die de bouw van de huizen financierden. Om de kosten laag te houden ontwierp Philips Vingboons uniforme huisjes: twee bouwlagen boven een kelder, die vaak apart verhuurd werden.-lt;br>-lt;br>-lt;br>-lt;br>Auteur: -lt;a href=“http://www.routeyou.com/user/view/2482.nl”>Dromos-lt;/a>-lt;br>-lt;br>-lt;a href=“http://www.routeyou.com/location/view/4730.nl”>Meer informatie-lt;/a> -lt;center>-lt;img src=“http://storage.routeyou.com/image/thumbnail/width/300/height/300/filename/NLD_Amsterdam_Weteringstraat_x_Tweede_Weteringdwarsstraat_01.jpg”/>-lt;/center>
