    I was just a child, but this is an example of how life as we know it can change in a few months.

    You are probably right. The Dutch East Indies folks were all over there up until end of WWII.

Streetcars look like the ones in Toronto Canada when we arrived there in 1956 - and are still running every few minutes today, sometimes two in tandem. Am I missing something?

    Not sure what you are referring too but pixelation occurs when you try to zoom in on an image and the detail is not there due to file compression. No amount of time is going to bring the lost data back.
