Malaya - 'Suara Takbir' Song Request Postcard (1957)
The postcard was sent before the independence of Malaya.

It was sent to Radio Malaya (National Radio) requesting for song and sending a wish on air celebrating Eid Fitr.

The date 7 May 1957 (Tuesday) equals to 7 Shawwal 1376 in Hijri calendar. Eid Fitr is a big celebration in Malaya even now.

The spellings used were before the language standardized in 1970s. Hence 'kapada', 'uchapan' and 'terima kaseh'.

Card dimension: 146 x 91.5 mm.
