The artwork captured the scene of daily life of the locals in front of a Chinese Temple, Kuala Lumpur in 1933. I guess the temple is 陳氏書院 Chan Clanmen Study Hall / Chan Shi Shu Yuan , also known as Green Temple due to its green ceramic wall tiles. The Temple is the clan association for Chinese people surnames start with 陳 (Chan, Chen, Chin and Tan) from the bloodline of emperor of Shun.
Address : 172, Jalan Petaling, Kuala Lumpur.

I discovered a new series of postcard available in Kinokuniya bookstore.
A beautiful illustration artwork of a Malaysian artist ~ FeiGiap from Loka Made.
At first, I was thought that was another kind of Shōjo Manga (少女漫画) . As shōjo literally means "girl" in Japanese, which mostly aimed at the teenagers.
Loka Made also offers DIY pop-up postcards
