Description:

Marine Hotel in Batavia

One of the landmarks of the Molenvliet West in Batavia, the Marine Hotel operated as a city inn since at least the 1830s. It also hosted a portraiture facility by the name of Saurman's Daguerrian Gallery from 1853 onwards. It ceased to be a hotel in 1888 and demolished.

Reproduction after a lithograph published in the year 1883 in the Netherlands, based on a drawing by J.C. Rappard. During his posting in the Netherlands Indies from 1842 until 1872, Rappard painted and drew pictures of life in the Indies and various sceneries. Later, back in the Netherlands, they were being made into decorative lithographs.
