Description: Steam Printing, shop and apartment-

Between 1889 and 1890 this steam printing business with associated store and attic apartment was build. Printing (1889) as well as shop (1890) were built by Eduard IJdo designed by architect D. Veilbrief. The most representative facade of the store with apartment is built close to the then very common Dutch Neo-Renaissance style. The other facades have no particular stylistic characteristics. Parts of the store interior are in original condition and in close stylistically to the exterior. The Highland Kerkgracht oriented retail property is part of the protected townscape. – National Monuments Website – Rijksmonumenten NL
