From what was written at the back of this photograph, we know that:

  • this was taken during the Lions Club dinner on 3rd August 1975
  • one of the gentlemen in this photograph is Mr Balakrishnan – who worked at the Ipoh High Court

Any Lions Club members out there? We’d like to know MORE about this event.

PS: does anyone remember WHO the Menteri Besar of Perak was that year?

Born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1906, BM Iversen arrived in Malaya in 1928 and worked for two architectural firms before setting up his own practice in Ipoh in 1936. After World War II, Iversen, van Sitteren & Partners had offices in Ipoh, Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.   Notable buildings he designed in Ipoh include the Cathay Cinema and the Geosains Complex. His signature International Style won him many private and public commissions. According to Ken Yeang’s book Architecture of Malaysia, “It became an indication of status among Ipoh’s wealthy businessmen to own an Iversen-designed house.”
