Blast from the past. These are some advertisements I took (the pictures) from a resort in Jogjakarta. They’re so unique as most of them were written in Javanese (either in Roman or Carakan scripts), and sometimes in Bahasa. Those advertisements were from between 1929-1940, when Indonesia was still under the name Netherlands Indie. Some of them can be still found nowadays (including LUX and Blue Band margarines). Enjoy it.
I think this is for your headache, written in Javanese script
But my favorite one is Lux, why? because the lady in the advertisement is local one. It was very rare at the time as most of Lux’s advertisements were always depict Hollywood stars as their icon. That’s the real Indonesian beauty at the time…wow!
