A picture of history. Christ Church and Stadhuys.
All the building are still available in the present time. Just we don’t know what were the building colors actually in that day. No traffic jam. Only have horse, and four people. All with bear foot. If we look at all the 4 people judging by their clothing, I can say at the horse maybe a Malay or a Chitty, Chinese wearing hat and a Chinese boy. Of course that day it was not a place for tourist. Its an administrative building in a town center. I don’t know the exact date of the picture but we can guess from which period. Looks like no Victoria Fountain and the Clock tower already exist. Clock Tower was built in 1886 in honour of a successful Chinese tycoon named Tan Beng Swee. Victoria Fountain was built in 1904 by the British in commemoration of Queen Victoria’s 60th anniversary of coronation. So we can say the picture was between 1886 and 1904. 19th Century.
