Vue de la Porte de Kettel à Delft


Georg Balthasar Probst (1732 – 1801)
Vue de la Porte de Kettel à Delft (1770)

Georg Balthasar Probst was a German engraver and publisher. He made optic prints of many European cities.

Because The Hague was not officially a city, it was not allowed to make beer. All beer brought in, mainly from Delft, was brought to the Bierkade and was allowed to be traded and unloaded only at that place so that the payment of excise taxes could be controlled. Beer stealers were allowed to live on the Beer Quay, beer tappers and innkeepers were not.
