Completed in 1901 by the Public Works Department, it was the second rest-house in Gopeng, the first one having been taken down to make way for it. About the postcard: I see in database entry 8467 that it was posted in 1907, which is consistent. The entry continues: the rough idea of what was written by James to George in England was to confirm a date which was the 11th of May and not the 18th or 20th of May. Not quite. What the writer said is that the card was “posted today” (the 11th of April, 1907) and that it “should arrive on 11th May, or perhaps not till 18th or 20th” — which is a useful reminder of how long postcards took to travel from Singapore to London in those days: 4-5 weeks. ika May 16, 2018 at 11:00 am - Reply Thanks Ipoh Remembered. I have made some changes to the database items that relate to the Rest House. Ipoh Remembered May 16, 2018 at 9:45 am - Reply One other thing: Wonder if [this rest-house is] still there in Gopeng… Not only is the rest-house no longer there, neither is the hill upon which it used to sit. (Some details are available in database items 498, 946, 1087, and 1088.) sk May 16, 2018 at 3:50 pm - Reply Hi Ipoh Remembered – Is there a typing error – 1088 database shows no result. Ipoh Remembered May 16, 2018 at 6:22 pm - Reply Dear sk … It’s possible that you were looking for database item 1088 at the same time as it was taken off line for editing. If you look for it again now you will likely see it. (I checked a few moments ago and it was there.) sk May 18, 2018 at 2:45 pm - Reply Nope, Ipoh Remembered, 1088 is still not there. Ipoh Remembered May 18, 2018 at 5:59 pm - Reply I still see it there, sk. Title is “Aerial View of Gopeng Town from the South.” (Via e-mail I’ve sent you an image of the entry.) sk May 23, 2018 at 8:01 am - Reply Got it, Ipoh Remembered. Maybe my browser mulfunctioning.
