We had a request for a picture of the famous Rose Villa. Here is one taken around 1982 (to see what it looked like inside, click here).

This mansion was once owned by Towkay Leong Tian – a miner and philanthropist. Sadly, the mansion (which was along Gopeng Road) is not there anymore. After it was demolished, the area became the site for 6 new houses.
