Netherlands: Streets in the Jekerwartier, Maastricht

From times immemorial, the leather industry was concentrated in the Jekerwartier. Just as the other important branch of industry in Maastricht, cloth weaving, the tanning process depended on running water in various stages of production.

The various arms of the Jeker served this purpose in the southern portion of the mediaeval town. Names of streets in this quarter, such as 'Grote Looiersstraat', 'Kleine Looiersstraat' and 'Witmakersstraat' recall former days.

In the basements of several houses in the Grote en Kleine Looiersstraat are found large rectangular basins in which the hides were tanned.
