And now the oldest shopping complex left standing goes to Campbell Complex hehehe !!!

:cheers:

ps self had many good memories at old Jaya Complex in Section 14, PJ loor !!!
Lol, Campbell together with Sungai Wang are the two old-timer malls still around... Somehow both are able to withstand the test of time despite the many new complexes that have emerged nearby, over the years...

Out of curiosity, I know Pertama Complex and Semua House are pretty old buildings also... But both were built in the 80s rather than a decade earlier ya?

An early 1950s picture of the Sulaiman Building in Kuala Lumpur. Opened in 1933, it was originally one of the buildings owned by the Federated Malay States Railways and has been used by various government departments over the decades. Today, it is occupied by the Asian International Arbitration Centre. It is designated as a National Heritage Centre.

A 1978 photo of the Federal Highway at what is now the Mid Valley bridge. To the left you can see the houses of Taman Seputeh and Mid Valley Megamall of today will eventually be located to the extreme right of the bridge.

If not mistaken, this was right after the completion of upgrading works of Federal Highway from Syed Putra roundabout to PJ at Jalan 222 (known as KL-PJ Highway upgrades) !!!

The Cenotaph at its original position near the KL Railway Station in the early 1950s.
In 1964, the cenotaph was moved from its original location to the site of the National Monument in Lake Gardens before a planned flyover (the Kinabalu Flyover) connecting Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin and the Parliament roundabout was constructed over the original site. Transfer of the cenotaph was made possible by dismantling the structure into catalogued parts, allowing the structure to be transported in pieces and reassembled in its original form at the National Monument. Following its move, inscriptions were added to include fallen soldiers from the Malayan Emergency (1948–1960) and an archaic Malay translation of "To Our Glorious Dead", "Untok Mengingati Jasa Pahlawan-pahlawan Yang Gugor" ("To Remember the Service of Warriors Who Have Fallen").

View of Jalan Melaka in the 1960s . The bus station seen in the photo is the site of the old Bank Bumiputra Building (now Menara Etiqa). You can see part of the former Standard Chartered Bank hidden behind the trees.
