Netherlands The Strand[Hotel], Rangoon
Photo of the beach resort in Rangoon (Yangon), Burma, taken by Philip Adolphe Klier in the 1890s. In 1896 the Sarkies Brothers founded two more renowned castles, the Raffles in Singapore and the Bangkok Oriental. It was promoted in Murray's Handbook of 1911 as "Leading Hotell in the East" and supported by many well-known people.
It' a piece of plaster on Strand Road overlooking the Rangoon River. It is a general picture of the road of the main facade of the house with palms in the front. Klier, of Germany background, began in 1871 as a freelance journalist in Moulmein, Lower Burma.
Mostly for Europeans, he took several hundred photos both to commemorate their visit to Burma and to arouse great interest in her work. His interests included the depiction of Burma's tessellations, woodcarvings and other handicrafts. Indeed, he later became a trader in handicrafts such as silver goods and upholstery.
