Travel through the plantations of peninsula Malaysia with authors Peter and Waveney Jenkins as they visit the architecturally diverse estate bungalows that housed generations of managers and their families through some of the country’s toughest times. Over 200 bungalows are featured in this lavishly illustrated volume, complemented by interviews with key individuals involved in the plantation industry and the estates themselves, with some of the illustrations featuring photographs taken by planting pioneers. This travelogue-style book is filled with insightful and often humorous anecdotes on plantation life in the colonial era alongside a review of the development of the planter’s bungalow by eminent architectural historian Chen Voon Fee.
