Know this road? Way back in 1945, this was part of the Singapore-Penang route. This picture shows the road passing through Ipoh (although, we don’t know which part of Ipoh this is).

Yes, there weren’t many cars on the roads in those days; in the picture are a couple of bullock-carts.

Must have been a nice way to travel (save the LONG hours)…..minus the toll! 🙂
