We have seen a number of Ipoh’s young ladies recently and here we step back a generation or two. It is before the war came to Malaya, Hitler is causing problems in Europe while the world is struggling to recover from the 1929 depression. This was the era of the Superman comic (first published in 1938), the Benny Goodman Band and the film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was a popular attraction.
But here in Ipoh it was all about pretty girls, Cheongsams and shoes as the picture shows.
We thank ipohbornkid for this wonderful step back into Ipoh’s past.
