Actually, even the old Supreme Court building lost its spires. Its a pity because these spires add quite a nice dimension to the buildings.ILM said:I wonder what happened to the 'tiangs' on top of the building, they were there in the first pictures, the they just disappeared in all pictures from the 20th century...
BTW, I want Frank Swettenham to stand back there, these people, dont appreciate history.
Thanks raynman. Although it is just a sketch but still very nice. A really grand-looking cinema in its 60s & most of 70s heydays - I would like to know a bit more of this cinema's history though. When was it built and opened for business? And does anyone know when was the fire that destroyed the cinema and when did they built the present structure?Here you go, taurus.
1) An undated photo (could be in the 1970s) showing a busy Jalan Sultan Ismail (formerly Treacher Road). Note the old KL Hilton, Kompleks Antarabangsa and the already-demolished Hotel Equatorial. Can anyone identify the building which is under construction beside Hotel Equatorial?
Isn't this photo the one which I has already posted some time back? long1209 it will be nice if you can provide the "today" photo of this very same location - how this location looks today .........This is the Jalan Bukit Bintang/Jalan Pudu junction in 1966.
Kum Leng Restaurant, the corner lot situated at the turn-off to Jalan Galloway from Jalan Pudu, can be seen in the foreground.
Sorry taurus, I didn't realize you had posted this earlier.Isn't this photo the one which I has already posted some time back? long1209 it will be nice if you can provide the "today" photo of this very same location - how this location looks today .........
The title for this photo is "River Kuala Lumpur" - showing a metal bridge built across a river with some shophouses located at the extreme left. Can you figure out what river is this and where was this photo taken?
