This book captures a rare and insightful view of the Malaysian state of Perak as depicted by postcards from the 19th and 20th centuries. It covers the royalty and government of the Perak as well as the state’s well-known tin-mining activities and the conflicts which led to the founding and development of towns such as Ipoh, the capital of Perak, and Taiping. Covering a spectrum of events, with a focus on the economy, people, flora and fauna of the state, Perak : 300 Early Postcards is a richly informative visual document of an important formative period in the history of Perak.
