Perhaps you can elaborate? Thanks. felicia November 8, 2017 at 2:52 pm - Reply Hi Ipoh Remembered. We believe this to be the street sign for Hume Street, with the words ‘Jalan Mesjid’ painted over.

If you have a look at a post I have just made you will see that once there were two streets before Jalan Masjid (original) was effectively abandoned and the name transferred to Hume Street which then disappeared except for this solitary sign.
