Eli the Hering Man

Eli de Haringman had his fish stall next to the Monument of ‘Gratitude’ (1950), corner Weesperstraat / Sarphatistraat in Amsterdam. Walking to the Snoge, my father was always horrified and we loyally urinated against it. Eli watched us. When he was happy, you got a lot of onions on your herring.
