The Beggar's House that Van Lennep and Van Hogendorp visit was on the Oostereiland: an artificial island that was created between 1662 and 1668. Warehouses for the Admiralty (navy) were mainly built on the East Island. In 1817 the warehouses were converted into a beggar's asylum, from 1829 to 2003 the complex served as a prison. Today this building houses the Museum of the Twentieth Century.
