Depicted is a view of the Dutch village Leidschendam along the river Vliet between Leiden and Rijswijk. Weissenbruch shows us two of the well known three bridges 'de drie bruggetjes'. At the left side he depicted the reformed church (so-called Peperbus) and at the right side, the sunlit Delftsekade with numerous figures. A lithograph after this painting was published in the Kunstkronijk, 1857, pp. 94-95, ill. 24.
