Printing Press & Book Binder (Jothee)

Jothee is one of Penang's oldest printing presses established in 1935 by S. Letchumanasamy who arrived in Penang as a 10 year from India. Working at odd jobs from morning till night to support his family, the young man eventually saved enough money to open a printing press at the age of 19. It was the first presses in Penang to produce locally made diaries and handmade accounts ledgers; today it is run by the founder's son Shanmuganathan. Description and photo by: GTWHI
