However, in the sixteenth century, prolonged hostilities and the repeated silting-up of the harbours resulted in a major economic downturn. Trade and prosperity steadily...

  • After the economic prosperity of the Golden Age, the Netherlands entered a period of stagnation and decline, which lasted roughly from 1700 to 1850. During this period the city of Leiden saw its population shrink dramatically from some 53,000 inhabitants to around 36,000. The Hague, by contrast, experienced strong growth, from 30,000 to 52,000 inhabitants. This article compares spatial developments in these two northern Dutch cities based on development maps generated by a detailed analysis of historical city street maps. Such visual documentation of urban spatial changes in this period...
