Remark :

The picture shows a postcard of the Old Courthouse, in Ipoh. This building was the first courthouse, along Post Office Road - facing the Birch Clock Tower. The first court house was built in 1888, and remained a court house until 1909. There was also a time when the building was used on Sundays by the members of St Johns Church. The Church later moved into its own building in 1912. The building of the old courthouse remained at its location; it later paved way for the Perak State Mosque. The present Courthouse, along Club Road, was in fact the 3rd building.
