This is the one, isn’t it?

Yea the bay-window houses look a bit Lego Land, but the other gabled houses in the distance behind the Exchange on both sides appear to be nice provincial versions of contemporary Amsterdam ‘bell-tops’, nothing wrong with that.

It does show us that it wasn’t just the new areas on the city, on the marches to the east, that were presenting ‘Dutch Billy’ streetscapes, but the old medieval city was substantially made-over in similar style at this time, 1740s – 1750s.
