Remark :

This photograph shows the front and side of the Ipoh Town Hall. The Ipoh Town hall building is a historic structure consisting of interesting Moorish Architecture and designs. It was completed in 1916 with the annex at the east end used as the Post and Telegraphs Office from 1928.

The building was designed by A.B. Hubback, the same public works architect as for Ipoh Railway Station and Kuala Lumpur Railway Station. Construction was commenced in 1914 but its completion was delayed because of high labour costs and shortage of materials brought about by World War I. The contractor for the project was Lim Weng Ching.

The Town Hall entrance shown in the photograph was in Club Road, while the Post Office Entrance was in Post Office Road.
