Amsterdam does have a physical archive, but it has an online presence too.  Like Utrecht, the city has a searchable archive and database.  The only thing, however, is one has to remember how to use it.  There’s no English version of this page, and typing in English keywords is not going to get you very many results.  For example, “Street” will get you no where, but “Straat” may be helpful.  (This old canal photo I “borrowed” is an example of some of the visuals to be found there.  The interesting part of their pictures is that they come up in a flash window, allowing you to zoom in and out).
