    Great old postcard, Herald, very nice street view! What do we see here? Is it the Chinese quarter or the Dutch military school?

    I like this kind of tree-lined roads! And I just imagine how it might have looked in colour! Sometimes I would really love to own a time machine - one of the kind H.G. Wells described! It would definitely be a great experience to travel back in time for - let's say - two or three days! But maybe I wouldn't want to return to the world of today then! ;-)

    Have a great evening, my friend, and a wonderful weekend too! Mine will be busy - filled with a lot of work! Sigh... :-)

    Thank you very much everyone... :-)

    @Rolf: thank you for the beautiful photo my friend. This postcard isn't part of my collection unfortunately. I was participating in an auction but the auction was removed. I decided to post the scans anyway since I've lived in Gombong and old postcards of that town don't come around very often... :-)

    @Peter: this is the road leading to the militairy hospital. I share your fantasy, it would be great travelling back in time. I'd make damn sure I'd bring my camera as well... ;-)
