It is not our stadium. Too many whites. The only non white is an oriental wearing a tie in the hot sun at our stadium? Unlikely. Further there was this European wearing a maroon jacket with a counter with ‘Peter’ painted on it. More likely to be a club event….swimming competition or cricket match. May not even be in Ipoh.
I tend to agree with Brewster63. The man wearing the maroon jacket is selling Peter’s Ice Cream which is an Aussie brand and most likely in sunny Queensland as maroon is the state colour.
Could be as you can see, I dont think its a Malaysian Flag
or it could be an event in Ipoh where expatriates took part.
I could be wrong. I stand to be corrected.
A comment from sk sent earlier inadvertently went to spam and was deleted. He said:
“All pictured there were whites. Is it from a foreign country which I doubt Ipohword would publish & if it is, then its the first time.
The flag doesnt look like Malaysian Flag at the background unless I am mistaken as its too small.
For sk – sorry.
No apology required. No issue. Just wondering what happened.
Its called the “Devil’s workshop”.
Thanks for your clarification.
According to the Peter’s Ice Cream sales rep., this could have been at the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne. He’s taken a copy of the picture to pass around his office. Will update on the outcome.
Great stuff Mano, thanks. I wonder how it ended up in a batch of Ipoh photos of Greentown?
This photo may belonged to the Chinese(?) guy in the photo. Could he be the person who passed the batch of photos to Ipohworld?
No, this came with several other Ipoh photos on which we have no information.They were being thrown away when someone thought of us and passed them to us.
