View of the Jassen bridge and the barracks

Rach, Johannes

View of the Jassen drawbridge, showing the Gelderland bastion and the barracks to the right. The bridge spans a tributary of the Ciliwung river.

To the extreme right the roofs of the trade barracks are visible.

To the left we can see the roofs of the houses in the southern city. The smoking chimneys belong to the arrack distilleries. A little more in the foreground is a small wooden building, the 'interior' or 'Mardijker' guard.
