Taking the "books" out carefully as not to dirty the nearby furniture, a piece of paper jutted out from one of the "books". Upon closer scrutiny, En Badrul was shocked to discover that the piece of paper was actually a photograph of the SMI Primary school during construction! Meaning it was well over five decades!
The "old, outdated books" were actually photo albums - all in all a total of 14 photo albums. They appeared exactly the time when we are setting up the Michaelian Heritage Gallery.
Old, black and white photographs of Thomas Cuppers bringing home the Thomas Cup and a structure built to raise the prestigious trophy for Ipoh folks to appreciate were among the photographs found.
Thank you, En Badrul for the great discovery.
