Anderson Road in Ruins?

Much has been said about preserving our heritage buildings in and around the Kinta Valley. But alas, profit always seem to over ride conservation efforts.

The following photos (taken this afternoon) is yet another incident whereby pre-war shop houses are forced to make way for more modern structures….




One of our local dailies covered this story too. I’m sure some of you would have seen the demolition taking place – along Anderson Road (Jalan Raja Musa Aziz).

Where Is It?

The shop 3rd from left is ‘Chop Cheong Chin’; next to that is ‘Syarikat Perak Travel Agency’, which is also an agency for Singapore Airlines. That’s about all we could make out from this picture. Now, across the street from this row of shop houses…..(see picture below)

….is another similar row. Notice also that at the end of this street is what seems to be the roof top of the Market.

Could anyone help us with the name of this street. While you’re at it, what is that tall building in the background (seen in both the pictures)?

Renovation…or down right DEMOLITION?

This was brought to our attention by Mark Lay of Kinta Heritage.

Apprently, there’s been some ‘activity’ going on along Jalan Mustapha Al-Bakri (New Town) recently. From the notice that MBI put up, it appears to be “small renovation works”. Really? Well, we’ll let the pictures (below) be the judge of that!

So much for Ipoh garnering a place as ‘UNESCO World Heritage Site’……. 🙁
