Polls and Predictions! (Part 3 of the July 1955 series)
According to Tom Turnbull (our donor), “the impending ballot did not interfere with the work of this Bomoh who with his sheep’s head and other paraphernalia of his trade is keeping the crowd in suspense.” This picture was taken in Pasir Salak, close to the Birch Memorial – way back in 1955, when Malaya was holding her very first Elections. We never found out his prediction of who would win.:)
We wonder what the Bomoh’s forecast would be today!
