Chinese Temple in 1908

A Chinese temple beside what I assume is the Kinta River, taken in 1908


Station Road and Ipoh's famous Central Market

Station Road, which led to the railway station, and below that is Ipoh's famous Central Market (1911)


The Anglo-Chinese School in 1913



The People's Park where the protagonist, Chye Hoon, liked to walk (1921)



One of the temples in the caves, taken in 1927


View across the Hugh Low Bridge. Undated.


The image above is undated but no less remarkable. It shows New Town as my protagonist would have seen it. In the background, as always, are those wonderful hills.
