This 1966 photograph shows the exterior of a shophouse in Malacca Town. The paint on the wall is peeling and cracked and the clay tile roof is in need of repair. French louvred windows and a panel of Fujian jian nian (cut and paste) style ceramic mosaic shards embedded in cement to form figures can be seen. Title devised by Library staff.
