The class of 1940 –
This class photograph was printed on a photo card format, with a pencil marking ‘1940’. With traces of autographs on it – it was probably the graduating class of 1940.
Dad was standing in the middle row- seventh from right. He looked a smart and handsome 16 years old.
This class photograph was probably the remedial English school that he attended. He mentioned before that he attended English lessons on the top floor of the Foong Seong Building – in front of IPOH new town – wet market. As to the school that organized the classes, if I recall well what he said, it was probably the Anglo-Chinese School, Ipoh. I wonder if someone could recognize the teachers in the photographs.
PS - In the same year 1940 dad graduated from the Yuk Choy School. The graduating class from the Chinese school went on an excursion to Singapore, and he had left behind a number of photographs from that trip.
