An early card of the Goebeng bridge (and wier or barrage?) at Soerabaja (Surabaja) in the Dutch Indies (Netherlands Indies), now Indonesia.
River boat in the foreground steered or propelled by enormous oars/rudders; another crew member is standing by a wheel which appears to rotate inline with the boat.
Publisher imprint on the front: "Photo-Atelier KURKDJIAN, Soerabaja. - Uitg. H. van INGEN, Soerabaja".
Van Ingen was a publisher of books and postcards; Kurkdjian is an Armenian name: many photographs of Armenia by O Kurkdjian were published as cards.
Condition: unused, slight corner scuffs, otherwise very good.
