View of the Port of Sunda Kelapa, previously also known as "Haven Kanaal" or the Harbor Canal. This view is seen from the old Culemborg Tower toward the open water. The fish market building, or "Pasar Ikan," is visible in the foreground by the "Vierkantsbrug" drawbridge, also known as the Square Bridge. A man stands on the bridge, while a few "delmans" or horse-drawn buggies are parked by the fish market.
