My Postcards: Asia Afrika Conference (1955-2005) -Limited Edition

Dear Friends,

As I promised, I share my very own postcards here before i send it through POSTCROSSING.com to the people around the world.

I found these postcards at Jl. Braga, Bandung. Braga Street (official name in Indonesian: Jalan Braga) is a small street in the center of Bandung, Indonesia, which was famous in the 1920s as a promenade street. Chic cafes, boutiques and restaurants with European ambiance along the street had made the city to attain the Paris of Java nickname. The street starts from a T-junction with the Asia-Afrika Street (or De Groote Postweg during the colonial times) to the north until the city council (balaikota), which was formerly a coffee warehouse. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Braga_Street)

It was exactly at the very old bookshop, called :Toko Buku Djawa (Djawa Book Shop, Djawa means Jawa or “Java” in English.) It’s a small book shop with vintage things. So lovely, I believe this book shop has lots of histories. It sells rare books, pictures from Old Braga, painting, magazine, newpapers, greeting cards, and postcards indeed. 🙂

Bunch of POSTACARDS! >_< These are Indonesia Tourism editions, I decided not to buy these, because the price is more expensive than the place I can also find these, which is Kantor Pos Pusat Kota Bandung Jl. Asia Afrika (the main Post Office of Bandung City, Jl. Asia Afrika)
