Shop Name on Pillar

Well, you will see this quite common in many Malaysian towns. Pre-war shop houses are commonly carved the shop name on the pillars. This is still seen in many old shop buildings in Ipoh & this is one of those found in Hugh Low Street. The embossed characters are supposed painted in different color but it will be consider an advertising board if doing so & local authorities would charge for its license. Therefore many shops have painted it white or similar color to the wall so no cost incurred.
