Penang Postcard Collection 1899 – 1930s is an excellent book. The pictures of the postcards are clear. The text font is big. The text by Wade and Khoo Salma Nasution @ Ms Khoo Su Nin on the historical streets and monuments shown in the postcards is excellent.
Wade is the owner of the postcards. Khoo Salma is the writer and historian. It is obvious both of them have spent a lot of time to dig up the history behind these postcards. Do read this book before you explore George Town on foot. An excellent article on this book came out in the Malaysian newspaper Star 13 March 2005.
