Amsterdam's narrow houses were built so because one had to pay taxes on the width of the frontage. So, up the people built, with narrow staircases and a gantry at the top to winch furniture to the upper floors. Many an electronic equipment has died on these trecherous journey.

Hit & Miss Windows.

Amsterdam architecture features traditional canal houses and most of them have wide windows. The window tax was introduced in Amsterdam back in the day, which means that a property tax was based on a number of windows in a house. Therefore, it can be seen, that the more windows in the house, then wealthier occupants lived in the building that could obviously afford to pay this window tax.

The "window tax" was a property tax based on the number of windows in a house during the 18th-19th centuries in England. To avoid the tax some houses from the period had bricked-up some of their windows and painted over them, like this one with a window painting depicting supposedly Charles Dickens working by the window 🖼🎨

Back in the 18th and 19th centuries, window tax was imposed based on the number of windows in a house. To avoid paying this tax, people would brick up their windows which you can still see on some of the buildings to this date.

The window tax was a property tax based on the number of windows in a house. It was a significant social, cultural, and architectural force in England, France, Ireland and Scotland during the 18th and 19th centuries.

To avoid the tax some houses from the period can be seen to have bricked-up window-spaces (ready to be glazed or reglazed at a later date). #lyon #lyon🇫🇷 #lyons #france #france🇫🇷 #francia #85mm #85mmlens #landscape #building #architecture #travel #rhone #auvergne #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #trix #windowtax #windowtaxes #colorslyon

Québec, wonderful city. Changed windows into a wall because of a window tax in 1845. A cannonball excavated by a trees root, a relic of bygone times. #quebec #québec #quebeccity #windowtax #citadel #citadelle #cannonball #chrisblifestyle #loveyou #love #street #streetsofquebec #relic

I don't know who owns this house but it caught my eye. Window boarded up through 'window tax' - in what looks like mostly original condition. I'd like to live here for a while.
