Its boom period began around 1880 and lasted until well into the 1930s, largely on the back of tin mining and it became known as the town that tin built. The tin rush drew in hordes of migrants, mostly chinese, many of whom went on to build substantial fortunes. This wealth is reflected in the architecture of the period and many fine buildings remain in the old part of the city, west of the River Kinta, and are covered in this Ipoh Heritage Walk:-
