Delft blue canal house (souvenirs) small.
A canal house (Dutch: grachtenpand) is a (usually old) house overseeing a canal. These houses are often slim, high and deep.
Because of the danger of flooding the front door is sometimes higher up and only accessible via stairs.
The floor of the main storey lies about seven to nine steps above street level.
Many stoops disappeared in the 19th century when entrances were moved to the basement.
