Shop sign

Above the entrance is the 'shop sign' of the tabacco store. An indian with a pipe, smoking must have been once the new thing to do imported from the colonies.

According to the book I'm reading now, quite a few Dutch made it big in the tobacco and cigar industries in the Philippines in the late 19th century. It wasn't just in the Dutch East Indies!
