This photo was taken on 8th December 1954. It was taken during the Marian Year Pageant. Were you part of this pageant? Recognise anyone in the group?

    Its my 1st time coming across this Marian Year Pageant. Picture is still very clear for a 1954 take. Nope, no idea where. If school, it could only be SMI or Convent.

    But a question: I believe a different Pope declared a second Marian Year in the late 1980s. Does anyone know if it was celebrated in Ipoh?

      Yes there was a Marian Year nominated in 1988 and again this year, 2017 but I can find no reference to the churches of Malaysia taking part. Perhaps someone out there will tell us different.
