The Hopoh Association Members Outside Their Headquarters Building
At first their headquarters was a rented building owned by Foo Yet Kai, but on December 16th 1962 their own new building was opened in Jalan Che Tak, Ipoh. The picture dated March 2nd 1967 probably records the formal opening of the new headquarters and this copy was presented as a gift to their Chairman Dato Chong Kok Lim by the Hopoh Association members. It was found in the local market.
The building is currently (2008) leased to the Sakura Hotel.
The Hopoh Association is formed by members from the Hopoh area of Guangdong, China. They speak the Hakka dialect but with the Hopoh intonation which is quite different. Chong Kok Lim was born in the area in 1913.
