Would You Believe…. …that Brewster Road was this ’empty’ back in 1959? From the traffic I see today, I can hardly believe it myself!

Hopefully then we can get a clearer view.

Charlie August 15, 2012 at 1:04 am - Reply You can see these roof figurines on some of the original shops along Anderson Road, opposite the Park. There is a pair of dogs, a pair of pigeons and a peacock still standing. Happy hunting!

The town planner had the foresight for wide roads as opposed to older towns like Melaka, Georgetown and Kuala Terengganu. I am convinced that Ipoh must have been very pleasant. BMI’s creation has the character of geometric shapes joined together like building blocks. It such a marvel then to construct gravity defying structures.
