A 1538 painting by Cornelis Anthonisz showing a bird's-eye view of Amsterdam;
the famous Grachtengordel had not yet been established.
This actually is one of the oldest surviving maps of Amsterdam, showing the city's finished medieval walls, towers and gates.
Like in most old maps of Amsterdam the city is shown from the river IJ, so that the view is directed to the south rather than the north.
