A Country House at the Vecht, Holland. Where the well-to-do Amsterdam families sought rest and relaxation.
The merchants of Amsterdam left the bustling city looking for homes, preferably with a garden, where they could simply relax.
This illustration shows the exterior of “Elsenburg” in Maarssen. The owner, Theodorus de Leeuw, was a wine dealer from Amsterdam who lived in France for many years. Although the Elsenburg estate was demolished in 1812, it serves as an excellent example of what the wealthier side of life looked like in the 18th century.
The other puzzle in the series is City Life in the Mid 19th Century.
