Occupational signs

Walking around in Amsterdam (as you do, and I certainly did) last weekend, I noticed a handful of signs that I thought worth sharing. Typical from the Golden Age are the signs depicting various occupations, and these are grouped together on the corner of the Amsterdam Museum. The other one, much more combative, if you will, I spotted just a few corners further up the road. Although the fact that it had been left discarded, leaning against the wall, might mean that the war against nature is truly over! ;)
