This is a pictorial treasury of Tawau, with more than 260 photos, maps and diagrams showing the people and places of its 150 year story. Words in both English and Bahasa Malaysia help tell the tale. Look closely at these pictures and the strange yet familiar world of the past will come alive. Ken Goodlet collected many of the images over the 50 years from his arrival in Tawau as a teacher. Others have come from sources in Malaysia and Australia, including friends and former students. This is a companion book to the author’s 360-page history, Tawau: the Making of a Tropical Community (2010).
