This picture was taken by New Good Friend Studio & Frame Makers, of No.7 Theatre Street, Ipoh. It is believed to show the British District Officer wearing shorts in the centre, with a visiting Government Officer and the Village Council Members.

Behind the group there appears to be an open building with a tiled roof, and on the left an attap roof kampung house. Could this be the opening of the new communal building for use of the people in the village?

If anybody has any clues about the origins of this photograph, said to be in the Kampar District, we will be very pleased to hear from you.
