In case you’re interested: the map also includes the Stalinlaan. This street, originally known as Amstellaan, was renamed Stalinlaan in 1946. In 1956, it would change once more into Vrijheidslaan (Freedom Avenue).
In 2009, a street sign ’Stalinlaan’ appeared, to the surprise of local residents. Months later, this turned out to have been a project by artist Jonas Staal https://www.nieuwsuitamsterdam.nl/en/1067/stalin-avenue-enigma-solved
I had to look up the Mariniersplein, which no longer exists, and came across this very pretty map of Amsterdam from 1948 (detail). https://archief.amsterdam/beeldbank/detail/72b1d10a-6974-d782-f90a-5b990392cee6

Interesting chart showing when the Giro was won. Not the ‘drama and suspense’ INRNG had hoped for: «In terms of the chart above you want to see highs and lows rather than flat lines.»
As you’d expect with this type of map, the width of the line segments represents traffic volume (1 mm = 6,000 daily passengers). Interestingly, colour represents traffic growth (or decline) between 1954 and 1965

The Nazis used brutal repression to crush the strikes. Some considered them a failure, but for Bouman they marked a turning point in the history of the Dutch resistance, giving the people a sense of what they were capable of.
On 29 April 1943, wildcat strikes broke out in the Netherlands to protest against the Nazi occupation. They started with a walkout at the Stork factory in Hengelo, and quickly spread across the country.
These strike density maps for 30 April and 1 and 2 May are from a report for the Netherlands Institute for War Documentation (P.J. Bouman 1950, De april-mei-stakingen van 1943).
