      Thanks — and supposing that to be the case, I should infer that … ?

      The name “Jalan Masjid” was officially abandoned in favor of the name “Hume Street”? Or … ?

      Probably I’m missing your point! Help!

        Ipoh Remembered. 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.

    The whole road is now known as Jalan Mesjid (though we still call it Hume Street”. Some of the houses there are over 100 years old.

      Thanks, S.Y.. If the western half of today’s Jalan Mesjid was once officially called Hume Street, do you remember when that might have been? That’s one question I’m not sure about.

      Other questions: Could it have been the town council that painted over the “Jalan Mesjid” sign shown above and, if so, when and why did they do it?
