The ground plan of Delft is estimated by the drain of water. A dug watercourse, named de Oude Delft, connects de the Vliet and the Schie. Almost rectangular several ditches are situated. In the Dutch Golden Age the early importance of Delft was emphasized by the third position in the row of voting cities. The city also was a large lager for weapons and had a number of military warehouses and workshops. Because of the Harbour (Delfshaven) Delft was also represented in the College of Admiralty and the Fishing Board.
