More Memories From Malim Nawar Here’s another one from Richard Saxey’s collection. Yes, this is Malim Nawar! I know some of you can name all the gentlemen in this photograph. But I’d like to draw your attention to the man with the coolie hat (extreme left). What is he doing? Related posts: And What About this Place?

Well, who knows…..maybe, maybe not 😉 Anyone else care to guess? kim lee January 31, 2019 at 8:20 pm - Reply hi Felicia, Better late than never. A resident of Malim Nawar, like many of its prodigal sons who has scattered all over the globe, I now wish to trace back my ancestral heritage. Maybe end up there! Does any of your contributors has any images of the one and only Shell Petrol shop in Malim Nawar at No.5 Main Road, which has been supplying Anglo-Oriental, Perak Hydro, Chines Kongsi with petrol, lubricants over the years from 1920`s until the shop`s demise in 1988. The petrol pump is located on the other side of the railway line, ie opposite Perak Hydro. Most of these photos can only come from expats. I am now based in London but make trips back to MN. Any “contacts, follow-ups, photos” that your sources may have, I would be most happy to take stock of them and you can contact the website publishers for my email address and ask people like R.Saxey, W.Lewis, Marea Smith to contact me. I was back in MN -end of last year. Its now a sleepy lagoon and a retirement home. But if your not in the fast lane and your close to mother nature and if your a prodigal son who has come back to roost, there is no place like home. Whats left are the memories of then booming town, the missionaries who has come and gone but left their mark[tracing missionaries my next assignment] and ones roots.

Anyone who has pics of this particular Shell Petrol shop where Perak Hydro draws its supplies from, I like to hear from them. email@example.com regards, kl Leave A Comment Cancel reply Comment Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
