Charlotte Jacobs (13 February 1847, Sappemeer – 31 October 1916, The Hague), was a Dutch feminist and pharmacist. She was the first of her gender in the Netherlands with a degree in pharmacology and also active within  the women’s movement. She was the sister of Aletta Jacobs.[1]

Charlotte Jacobs became the second female university student in the Netherlands when she started her studies in  Amsterdam in 1877 and the first female pharmacist in 1879. She was a pharmacist at the Utrecht hospital in 1882–84.

In 1887–1912, she managed her own pharmacy in Batavia in the Dutch East Indies, and was as such the first female pharmacist in the Dutch East Indies.[2]

Nederlandsche Apotheek
We are looking south. Left of the Nederlandsche Apotheek (Netherlands Pharmacy) is Tjikini, to the right Oud  Gondangdia. The sign near the drugstore says “Parata, against pain, flu and hangover”.

At the front, partly visible, an  advertisement for Dunlop tyres. Despite a usual busy intersection, we only see cyclists and pedestrians on this  photo. On the site of the former apotik/drugstore is now the “Menteng Huis” with the Kimia Farma Pharmacy and a  number of other stores.

Up until the end of 1957 the pharmacy had the name “Nederlandsche Apotheek”. Afterwards it most likely changed  into “Radjapharma”. The pharmacy existed until at least the mid 1990s when this lovely building was sadly  demolished.

Now it is the site of the multi-storey Menteng Huis, with Kimia Farma and a HEMA branch. On this  picture we look straight into Oud Gondangdia (Jalan RP Soeroso), right of the pharmacy. The delman on the right  comes out of the Van Heutszplein (now Jalan Taman Cut Meutia). On the left of this picture, next to the street  lantern is the entrance to Huize Vijfsprong on Menteng (Jalan Menteng Raya) 37, a 19th century house that has been  entirely rebuilt in its original state in 2018.
