The plaque above the little gate says that the painter Jan Steen (1626-1679) lived and worked here. I'm not sure whether the pub he had to support him besides his paintings was also located here.

I tried to get the gate on the picture without the car but couldn't manage that. But i'm glad that at least it is my favorite car.
