Formerly known as Saint Antony’s Gate (Sint Antoniespoort), the weighing house is the oldest non-religious building in Amsterdam. It ceased being used as a weighing house in the early 19th century, but the name remained.
Photoengraving from an etching.

The caption reads in the original French: Amsterdam. La porte Saint-Antoine.
