Family_0015

Here’s a nice one from a family album. We thank Alexander for this gem. According to him, the girl (standing) is his grandmother Madam Ursula. Behind her are her parents Mr Arokiasamy and Mrs Iruthayamary. The little one on the car is Ursula’s sister Kolanda Theresa. Incidentally, Mr Arokiasamy was involved in the textile & liquor business.

Anyone else have similar memories of their childhood to share? We’d love to hear from you ūüôā

How Well Do You Know Station Road, Ipoh?

As most of you can guess, this is Station Road. I’m guessing this picture was taken in the 50s (I could be wrong though).

We’d like to draw your attention to the row of shops on the right. What we’re trying to find out is: what was the shop on the extreme right (next to Charles Grenier)?

This picture was sent to us by Nicholas Jennings.

The LaBrooy Building

Besides the Seenivasagam brothers, Ipoh was also ‘home’ for¬†two brothers of the LaBrooy family¬†– C H LaBrooy & H W LaBrooy. These brothers used to live at Dulcieville Lane, Ipoh (the area which is now Parkson Ipoh Parade).

We have here a 1980s picture of the LaBrooy Building. As you can see, it was once used by UMBC. Anyone know what the LaBrooy building is used for now? Has any company bought it/renting it?

Station Road, during the Great Floods of Ipoh!

By |2011-06-03T10:38:18+08:00June 3rd, 2011|Categories: Identify Photographs, Ipoh Town, Memories|Tags: , , |

From the recent comments we’ve had, some of you love looking at old photographs. Well, today you’re in for another treat!

We estimate the date of this photograph to be 1926, around the time of the great flood. The picture shows part of Station Road – notice the sign on the far right “Charles Grenier & Co Ltd”.
