Some old KL photos from the good old 1980s ........



January 1985: The shopping complex wing of Kuala Lumpur Plaza standing tall on Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur. Now completely renovated, refurbished and re-named as Farenheit 88 ..........



January 1986: The covered walkway opposite the Klang bus stand. This will be the spot where the future LRT Pasar Seni station will be built .........



February 1984: View of Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur. The Yayasan Selangor Building can be seen on the right and Sungai Wang Plaza shopping centre can be seen further down on the right side of the road. The old Regent Hotel is also seen on the background left. The plot of land on the extreme left (notice the tree?) is where the future Lot 10 Shopping Complex will be built ......



The new & the old - November 1986: Malayan Banking Berhad's (now Maybank) old headquarters is on the left and Menara Maybank which is still under construction is seen on the right .........



December 1986: Hankyu Jaya Supermarket Holdings Sdn Bhd first started a department store and supermarket in Kuala Lumpur in 1984 (is it in the Chow Kit area?). In 1985 it opened in Alor Star. Two more are opened in 1986, one in Kota Bharu and another one in Ampang Park, KL ........

View of Foch Avenue (now Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock) in February 1972. The bus stop & road side stalls on the left side of the road is the site for eventual development of Kota Raya Shopping Complex ..........
At the end of the road, Sultan Street terminal station still can be seen.

Yes.....and at night it is filled with hawker stalls. My parents used to bring me there to eat.

The wet market then moved to Imbi ....around the area where Pasar Rakyat used to be. I think it would be relocated or gone forever as the KLIFD is gonna be built there.

It is one of the 'cleaner' and expensive wet market in KL as it caters a lot for expats and rich/educated tai-tais

Ahh, Hankyu, that is such a long time ago... I remember they were quite aggressive and also opened an outlet in Klang in the 90s (competing with Jusco in Bukit Raja)... If I'm not wrong, this Japanese store suffered the same fate as Yaohan, i.e. they closed shop due to the economic crisis in 1997...

And this is a super-old picture of PJ's EPF building, in 1962... Who would have thought that this satellite town of KL would grow into the bustling and dynamic city it is today?


Even the EPF building has been renovated and modernized into this :

Even more old KL photos for you to enjoy!



May 1967: The old Bank Bumiputra building located at Jalan Melaka in Kuala Lumpur. Now known as Wisma Tas ......



December 1966 - View of Chow Kit area. Note the overhead pedestrian bridge .........



March 1986: A view of Emporium Campbell, located at Campbell Complex in Jalan Dang Wangi, Kuala Lumpur ..........



August 1967 - The Lee Yan Lian Building as seen from Klyne Street (Jalan Hang Lekiu) in Kuala Lumpur .........



July 1986 - The front facade of Plaza Bukit Bintang at Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur.



26 December 1962: A 'lion' dancing in a crowded Kuala Lumpur street (looks like somewhere in the Pudu area to me by the design of those shophouses) for an ang pow, to the clash of cymbals and the roll of drums to usher in the "Year of the Rabbit".



March 1966: The National Electricity Board head office building in Jalan Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur nearing completion. Now houses Tenaga Nasional's KL headquarters ........



15 February 1977: Flower stalls sprout at Petaling Street's Chinatown selling pussy willows and other kinds of decorative flowers on Chinese New Year's eve .........

Thanks dengilo and taurus for the memories. We only sold the old restaurant site last year. Old KL is now just a memory.

Thanks very much elleooi, you have answered my question. If I'm not mistaken, this station was demolished when they decided to build Pudu Sentral (formerly Pudu Raya); am I correct?

The railway track end here in Jln Sultan. The picture shows the front entrance. The track runs towards the Pudu area. The train stops near the Pudu wet markets the goes to Ampang.

The fare was 10 sens from KL to Ampang in the mid 60s. The train was donated by Australia. From memory (I may be wrong) the normal train was a electric train.

My grandmother took me on this train to Ampang for the nine emperor god festival. She bought me a red tortise bread bun (taste terrible) and got a yellow ribbon to tie on my wrist.

As for the reason of demolition, I'm not sure about that, but Pudu Raya could be the reason for it.

If you are referring to the aerial photo above, I really can't remember when I have posted it but I have one more question for you - Where is the Sultan Street Railway Station in the photo above? It would be nice if you can highlight it in color for me.
I am not sure but remnants of the old track can still be seen at the junction of Jalan Pudu & Jalan Pasar (please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) ..........
