[Antique print, etching] A Perspective View of the New Drawbridge Canal and Great Orphan House at The Hague (Bierkade Den Haag), published ca. 1770.

View on the Bierkade in the center of The Hague (de Bierkade in Den Haag), the bridge over the canal in the foreground, a coach approaching from the left, boats in the middle distance. The great orphanage (het oude Weeshuis in het Spui) is visible in the distance, at center. Curiously, a naked man is standing on the right hand side, looking at a woman, also naked, swimming in the canal in front of him.

Titled in English and French at bottom, with the address of the publisher: “A perspective view of the New Drawbridge Canal, and Great Orphan House at the Hague / Vue & Perspective du Grande Bierkade &c. A la Haye. // London, Printed for Rob.t Sayer Map & Printseller at N. 53 in Fleet Street.”
