Jakarta, back then


Around two or three weeks ago, i found this page called 'Indonesia Tempo Dulu' on Facebook. Basically, what they are doing is posting some vintage photos & postcards of cities around Indonesia from the late 19th century to the late 80s. What i like is that on this page you can see how Indonesia, especially Jakarta was meant to be very decent from the side of transportation and city plan. Even in the '90s (since i was born in '87), I was able to witness some greatness that Jakarta had back then. Still green, people are cool, but somehow, our beloved city turns out to be extremely chaotic nowadays. What happened, really?

Check out these beautiful imageries of Jakarta, below, or head to Indonesia Tempo Dulu, here.
