No, that’s not me. Rather another lad, who was obviously proud of his family car (I would presume).
Other than the slight change in the logo, what else do you notice?
Did your sharp eyes see that famous symbol on the hill? Look again carefully, if you missed it 🙂

We thank Ipoh Remembered for this advertisement, which of course is from Cold Storage Ltd.
Here’s an idea for the weekend – indulge in your preferred flavour of ice cream (with your favourite toppings too!)
This is an advertisement from a 1967 newspaper (The Straits Times). Any fans of F&N here? Which was your favourite flavour?
Boon Pharmacy was run by the Chew family, as many of you know.
Incidentally, the family were neighbours with the LaBrooys.

Just curious: are those former Cycle & Carriage buildings still around? I know the Ipoh building is still there (but it’s not Cycle & Carriage anymore).
If they ever came to life (like in those Disney cartoons), perhaps these vehicles would have been good friends 😉
Here we have a bicycle, a car and a van; all three of them ‘worked’ for Ho Yan Hor.
We’d like to hear from the car-lovers out there – can you identify the type of car shown in this picture?
Could this have been a branch of Cold Storage? Or, perhaps Cold Storage’s competitor? We don’t know, so we’re hoping someone out there could help us out. Our anonymous donor didn’t say much about this photograph (and unfortunately, we are no longer in contact with this person). I’m sure someone out there visited 47 Cockman Street at some point in their life…
