This photograph shows a postcard by William Nabitoepoeloe, a Batak Christian missionary among the Orang Asli (the indigenous people), who survived the Japanese Occupation as a Senoi interpreter for the Japanese. From this card it appears that he was working for the Culture Department based at the Ipoh Town Hall, from where the card was sent. One of his other duties was to monitor the publications being circulated in Perak.


Can your sharp eyes spot the date of this postcard? 🙂
