Remark :

These two articles feature the Star Printing Works of Ipoh, one in English and the other in Chinese

Star Printing, in Belfield Street was founded in 1933 and has become a sort of unofficial museum of printing as it still has all the old printing machines and type etc that dates back to its inception and provides a look back into the mysteries of printing before technology took over.

Both articles have a wealth of photographs of the equipment on view.

A very similar enterprise, Wai Oi Shiah Printing Presses, closed dowm in 2017 after 100 years of operating at 25 Panglima Street Ipoh.
