Saving Yesterday For Tomorrow

    Well, there are quite a few landmarks to be spotted!

    For now, two items: the Universal Cars building and the padang on Jalan Sultan Abdul Jalil.

    Thanks to Nick Band for the photograph.

      Hi there Ipoh Remembered,
      From the emails our donor sent us, we’re guessing the date of his photographs to be anywhere between 1956 – 1959 (or even very early 1960s).

        Dear felicia

        Thanks for the date estimate. More likely late ’50s than early ’60s, I think, but cannot be sure without taking a closer look.

        Also, a second, smaller padang may be visible: the old oval in Green Town.

    In addition to the ancient padang on Jalan Sultan Abdul Jalil and the oval on the other side of that road in Green Town, you can see two service stations on Brewster Road: Mobil squarely opposite the Odeon and Shell on the left edge of the photograph.

    The Shell station can be seen more clearly here:
