How Amsterdam grew up

Some nice animations by the Amsterdam City Archive have appeared showing the growth of the city first from 1600-1700 and then from 1800-1900. It's a pity there's no sound - it would be even better with an explanation.

Notice that major buildings like the Concertgebouw (built in 1888) were initially outside the city centre.
