That book that I found at a secondhand book shop –Tanah Air Kita by N.A. Douwes Dekker– I can’t seem to get enough of it. It has so many really great photos of Indonesia in the 50′s. For today’s post, however, I only pick photos of Jakarta –or Jacarta according to the book– because based on the photos I think Jakarta as a city looked very modern, and very cultured too, just fantastic. I am not trying to be political but I think whoever wins the governor election today, he better looks at these photos. They are the reminder to all of us that Jakarta was once and can be a fine city.
