Interesting, Ottoman Empire, the Turkish flag flying.
Text on this postcard in Dutch (Vuurtoren), maybe sold by local merchants who came in small boats longside to the many Dutch ships on there way to Nederlands-Indië /Indonesia)

It was round-the-world travel in 1888 in the ship Silver Cross. As i understood from description travel was organized by Dutch publishing company.
