The caption says it all, really. Special thanks to “Daerah Batang Padang” – a Facebook page, where we found this rare picture.

When was the last time you took a group photograph at a railway station platform? 🙂

This picture was taken from a 1990 souvenir magazine. (Do ignore the red arrow 🙂 )

Do you recognise some of the iconic buildings shown here? Can you identify which part of Ipoh this is?

We have here Mrs Southwell, ‘flexing her muscles’ as it were. She must have been really strong, to attempt pushing a Triumph Vitesse Six! Looking on is her husband R. J. Southwell.

This picture was taken back in 1966, during the Triumph Owners’ Club (TOC) Gymkhana.
