1933 Chen Shi Shu Yuan

Reprinted piece of a watercolour artwork from Kathleen Russell.
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.
