Saving Yesterday For Tomorrow

We have here a picture taken outside the Grand Hotel, Ipoh. This picture was taken on Christmas 1917, according to our donor Nicholas Jennings. Recognise anyone in the picture? A relative perhaps? Do let us know.

We thank Nicholas for this picture via email.

    So tranquil, so removed from the Great War raging in Europe.

    Did the party coincide with the Emden’s “attack” of Penang?
    That too, if it did, was too far away to have cause for panic.
