An attractive view of the Batavia (Jakarta) city hall. In the foreground, natives and Europeans busily go about their day, with the classical structure in the background, and the title in a banner across the sky.
A nice impression. There is some light toning on the centerfold, which has been professionally reinforced on the verso.
