Sir Hans, I want to correct your photo information. Zwenbad location is located at the site of Bank Indonesia today. Swimming pool formerly "Teratai Padang " at Sudirman street rather than on the road Bagindo Aziz Chan.

Pandeka, you are right. My pictures are placed on the right location, but the title was wrong. I put also an old map on Google Earth.

yup..I saw it,,,but now, the dutch cemetery has changed into shooping center(former padang bus station). That's so sad, cause we cannot see it anymore.Actually I heard it from my parent that former padang bus station used to be ducth cemetery. would you mind to share your others collection about padang to me?cause it so interesting and I want to know about my hometown history.by the way, have you ever been to Padang?

Yes, my wife and I visited Padang once, and Indonesia several times. Alle the pictures I have, you can find on Google Earth. On one picture of the former cemetery you see a stone with the name Olga Boers-Hansen; she is my grandmother.
