Three short stories in the Maastricht dialect of The Netherlands. Each is a small insight into the goings on in Maastricht in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The first two play out in what used to be areas of working class quarters and give an insight into the lives of the people at the time. The third talks about the change Maastricht underwent when it stopped being a fortified city and lost most of its defenses, some of which date back to medieval times.
