1Then | The famous Waterlooplein flea market opened in 1886. Until the Second World War, most of the vendors were Jewish. After the war, the market started up again in its old location near the Mozes en Aäronkerk. A hint of its prewar atmosphere was preserved by the remaining Jewish vendors. In the centre of this photograph, you can see the cart of the Jewish herring vendor Manie Pront.
