No, this is not an estate manager’s bungalow. Neither is it a holiday resort. This is the Perak Armed Police Commissioner’s Quarters. We thank our donor Chee Ong Ngai for this picture.
(This could be Taiping, but I could be wrong. What do you think?)
Here’s another one from Harwant Lisa Harper. This was Ipoh, back in 1988.
When was the last time YOU received a Christmas (or any other greeting) card?
Here’s a shout out to those travelling home for the holidays. Have a safe journey and happy holidays!
We thank our donor Chee Ong Ngai for this picture. Yes, this was part of the FMS Railway…just after the Bukit Gantung Station.
We thank Chee Ong Ngai for sharing this with us. Looks like it was part of a magazine or booklet. Do you recognise it?
We thank Harvant Lisa Harper for sharing this picture with us. She also had this to say:
This is the army regimen house by the Ipoh Specialist Center. It was at one time occupied by the British. My dad was the guard there. Then the Japanese took over. Before they got there, he told me that he destroyed all the crystals that the British left behind so the Japanese could not hear what the British were talking about and also hid a pistol that was left behind.
Here’s a rare find. I’m sure you recognise the building the in background (left). We thank Chee Ong Ngai for this gem.
