Historical photos and postcards or Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Perak
What did Malaysia look like in the past? I am several years in Malaysia and even in this period I have seen things changing. Recently I was cycling from Taiping to Penang. On the way, large parts of jungle and plantations are destroyed for another highway. And again I asked myself, what did it look like 10, 20. 50 or 100 years back.
Below, a selection of postcards Prof. Farish A Noor published on Facebook about people and sceneries in Penang.
You are of course free to add your own photos, we'd love to see them too.
The second video is about Ipoh and Kuala Kangsar. This selection too is property of Mr. Farish A Noor.
The third video is a selection of photos send to us by Mr. Brian Paton and Mr. John Gardiner.
The last video is about Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Selangor. Thanks goes to Mrs. Fatimah Musa for her family photos and Mr. Farish A Noor for the postcards
