IN’T AEPJEN 

(literally ‘In The Monkeys”)

-AMSTERDAM, HOLLAND

After Amsterdam was destroyed by fire in 1452, the old city was rebuilt using brick. Of all the old wooden buildings that had made up the historic city, only two survived. One of these premises was an inn, located on the corner of the old Zeedijk (sea dike), near the infamous red light district.
