Carreras Miscellaneous Cigarette Cards Malayan Scenes 1928 Malayan Scenes 1928 M24 - When this set was issued Malaya was still under British control and the European influence can be seen in many of the pictures in this set. No where is this influence more obvious than Singapore, which although now a separate republic was then part of Malaya. There are pictures of the Victoria Memorial and Theatre, the Raffles Library and Museum, Government House, The King’s Dock and a lovely shot of the Cenotaph with rickshaws contrasting with the very British memorial and car. The back of this last card pays tribute to Malaya’s help in the First World War with both money and men. There are plenty of other black and white scenes including a Chinese circular gateway Penang, the imposing Malay College, the beautiful water tower at Teluck Anson, a surprisingly empty market place in Johore, the delightful Old Market Square in Kuala Lumpur, views of Malacca and the Government Buildings in Kuala Lumpar which are a lovely mix of Malay and European architecture. The pictures are backed by interesting information and the cards are size 70 x 61mm
