Warong (food stall) in Batavia (Jakarta) 1915

Old postcard from the old Dutch East Indies Jakarta was known as Batavia in that time. But I do love those old pictures!

Indie Moet Vrij! (“The Indies Shall Be Freed!”), 1944 The Dutch had a vested interest in the Japanese occupation of Indonesia. This British poster was distributed by the Netherlands Government in exile and distributed in the liberated South of the Netherlands towards the end of WWII. War Posters: Weapons of Mass Communication by James Aulich (New York: Thames & Hudson, 2007).

The Indies Must be Free! Japan is cast as an especially sinister octopus, In this context “Indie Moet Vrij” means that the Dutch East Indies should be Dutch again. Pat Keely’s poster, printed in.
