Amsterdam Local Customs: 413 reviews and 409 photos
These plaques once indicated to local Amsterdammers where the chemist/apotheke was situated... the man has a pill on his tongue! I guess in the old days few people were literate and pictures and symbols would have been necessary. I am so glad that a few of these have been preserved for posterity!
if you're a bloke, and had a few and don't want to get too close to the edge of the canal in case you fall in mid-pee. Or even if you are another "colourful local" and need somewhere to get changed in a hurry!
