Allandale, Rangoon. Typical Colonial-Burmese architecture.
A rare photo of the officer’s digs in the Cantonment. A place where visiting British officers were put up on visits to the capital. UDB
I am doing a family tree and just yesterday found that a lady on my tree (1920 ish) was described as “the prop. of the Allandale Hotel”. Her name was Grace Smith and she was the widow of a civil servant in the Public Works Department.
The Smith family seemed to have lived Rangoon/Moulmein from 1820-1920.
Allandale was run by government since 1867
