It’s not Universal Studios…rather Universal Cars Ltd. Yes, I’m sure some of you remember this building. Last I heard, it functioned as a nightclub for a while. Now, it seems to have been abandoned. Unless…there is something going on behind the scenes, which we don’t know about; in which case, we’d like to hear from anyone who could tell us more 🙂

Spearheading Into The Weekend!

Said to have originally belonged to a Village Chief (Penghulu), this particular spear has a simple forged blade about 10 inches long with a wooden shaft. Overall it is around 56 inches long.

Have you seen one similar to the one we have? Or have you wielded one before? 😉

  • he was an architect and developer
  • he once worked for the Ipoh Town Board as a draughtsman
  • he also owned Caxton Press (along Belfield Street)
  • he and his family lived at Dulcieville Lane

Yes, he is none other than C H Labrooy!

Do you remember the year these Alfa Romeo cars came to Malaysia? Perhaps the car-lovers might be able to tell us more. Maybe someone out there was standing in the crowd watching this promotion.

And…if you were one of these pretty girls in the photograph, we’d love to hear from you too 😉

Once Upon A Time…

…in Taiping. These were taken by Percival Moss, a tailor who sewed uniforms for the Malay States Guides and other military organisations. We thank his grandson Bernard for sharing them with us. We estimate the date to be early 1900s.

‘another one bites the dust’

No, we’re not being ‘bitter’ about it…but did anyone realise that this beautiful floral clock is no more? For those who’ve never had the chance to see it, here are two pictures for you; both are from Ann Kesselring Hamon. The lady in white (left image) is Ann’s mother Florence Kesselring. As for the right image, it was taken from a 35mm Kodachrome slide. 

For those (like me) who have never seen this lovely clock, it was once part of the Japanese Garden along Tambun Road.
