This 1966 photograph shows a food storage box, hung from the ceiling with a long hook in a house in Malacca. The contents are kept away from rodents and other pests, especially since it is suspended in mid-air. The box itself is encased with wire mesh to keep the flies out. Title devised by Library staff.
