Amsterdam Inspiration - 3

Pen and Ink drawing of the facades of Amsterdam.  I loved the architecture of the Amsterdam buildings along the canals.  The row houses were deliberately built narrow and deep in order to reduce the tax burden.  Real estate taxes are levied based on the amount of canal space occupied by the building.

Just for kicks, I added an iconic metal streetlight into the mix.  Can you spot it?
