All you can meat

This gate is called ‘het Schapenpoortje’: the sheepgate.

Behind this was the Penshal (Tripehall). This was a passageway, with long tables on which the offal and tripe were offered for sale, a sort of cheap butcher.  As you can see in the drawing above.

Go and find the other exit of the Penshal.

It’s no coincidence that it is located here, because across the street you can see a red door.

Behind this is the old Vleeshal (Meathall), where all meat has been compulsory traded since 1415.

Left of the Vleeshal you can spot a golden Oriental.

What is the person on his right wearing?
