Cinema news reel screened first in Holland in 1931 on the occasion of the upcoming renovation of the poor Jordaan district.

Daily life in the Jordaan district showing the Egelantiersstraat street and Prinsengracht canal with eg. a street sweeper near a city cleaning truck (I guess), bal playing kids, hand carts, horse-drawn wagons, a greengrocer, a woman with a tub cleaning a little cupboard or stove, kids play marbles, girls with breads, jump rope, a black doll, a scissors-grinder and inland ships in the Prinsengracht canal (near the corner Rozenstraat) with a tram car and the Westerkerk church in the background , and the Prinsengracht continuing on the left side of the church were Anne Frank’s family would start living some 10 years later.

Note

* Update title July 30, 2021 : This title ‘Jordaan Amsterdam 1931’ replaces the inaccurate and misleading original title (burned in film) “Jordaan Jewish Quarter Amsterdam 1931”. Because though Jews were living there (like Anne Frank’s family 9-10 years later – the actual center of the Jews of Amsterdam the centuries old ‘Jodenbuurt’ (literally Jews quarter) is a district on the opposite side of the historic inner city.

The Bridge


Ships (the Marina here) on the Nieuwe Maas river in the centre of Rotterdam, Holland. The red painted Willemsbrug bridge is spanning the river to the Noordereiland island – here on the right. In the background the railroad lift bridge De Hef – filmed by Joris Ivens in 1928 (De Brug) – now a monument. Filmed yesterday with handheld iPhone X , using internal mic.
