Remark :

The first picture shows four young men posing in front of the Brinsford Lodge signboard. Brinsford Lodge was offered to the Malaysian government as a Teacher Training College, back in 1955. More information about Brinsford Lodge can be found here.

According to the Brinsford Alumni Association, the four gentlemen in the picture are (from left to right):

Yusoff Khan (now deceased); Nazaruddin Mohd. Jali; Hassan Mohd. Yusoff; and (Tan Sri Dato Dr) Wan Zahid Mohd. Nordin. These men were from the 5th batch of Brinsford students, from 1960-1961. 

The second picture shows a gentleman posing in front of the Ormonde Hotel. We believe this to be the once famous Ormonde Hotel, a prominent building along the Liffey Quays in Dublin (Ireland). This hotel closed around 2005, and year later was bought by developer Bernard McNamara for €17 million. As of April 2016, a new application was made to have this building demolished.

We thank our donor for these pictures. If anyone knows more about the people in the pictures, do let us know.
