. "Pharmacy WH van der Meulen on the corner of Geldersekade and Stormsteeg is the only remaining 17th-century Amsterdam store and probably the oldest pharmacy in the Netherlands. It is certain that from 1696 onwards a large number of pharmacists continued to practice their profession at this location." (Submitted on March 22, 2019.)
