    Notice the roundabout which has now been demolished.

    A night scene of Merdeka Roundabout with Shell House in the background.

    The UMBC Building beside Shell House had not been constructed yet.

    Those lighted road pillars do not exist in KL anymore.

    An old abandoned building right in the centre of modern Kuala Lumpur.

    It is situated in Bukit Ceylon, one of the prime residential and commercial centres in the city.

    With the famous Menara Maybank in the centre skyline.

    Posing with an Austin 7 somewhere in Kuala Lumpur, May 1966.

    There seems to be a "School of Dancing" on the left.

    Do you recognize where this place is?

    Beautiful night view.
