Old photographs tell many private and secret stories. Old photographs in the form of pocture postcards, in particular, are a public exposition of things, people, sights seen by travellers along the way, that momentarily captured their private attention.

This is an exhibition of more than hundred postcard views of Malacca between 1900-1950 seen through the eyes of colonial travellers. Organized along four broad topographical themes: Town, Country-side, Life and Sea – most, if not all are of sights, places and practices that have since changed or have disappeared altogether.
