There are several theories about the exact location of The Little Street. In November 2015, art historian Frans Grijzenhout suggested that the building on the Vlamingstraat in Delft must have been the correct location. The neighbourhood in which the Vlamingstraat was situated at the time was a middle-class neighbourhood where people with meagre salaries lived, such as butchers and carpenters. The house depicted in this famous painting was the home of one of Johannes Vermeer’s aunts. 

Please bear in mind that the Vlamingstraat is in a residential area. Please do not block the pavement or the road, do not linger too long and respect the residents’ privacy.
