The portrait of Jakarta in the past can bring to mind the Indonesian people's memories of childhood. An old photo of Jakarta's street life from the 1960s to the 1990s drew a lot of attention.
Around 1995, this is a view of Jend. Sudirman street in Jakarta. There are still not many Jakartans who own 4 or 2 wheeled vehicles, so they must use public transportation. You can see a bus with travel number 213 majoring in Malayu - Grogol.

Photo of harmony intersection, Jakarta, around 1966. According to the photo, Jakarta was already clogged with four wheeled vehicles and three wheeled bicycles, known as "becak" in 1966.
