Have you ever wondered how Kuala Lumpur used to look like about half a century ago?
These ancient photos compiled by one R.S Murthi will take you back in time to the glorious past of Kuala Lumpur:
A couple of weeks ago, we featured a set of old photos of Penang and old buses in Penang, found from one R.S Murthi's site.
Knowing that we Malaysians love stepping back in time to talk about the "good old days", we decided to feature these photos of Kuala Lumpur dating back to the early and mid 20th century.
Murthi found the photos from various sources online and mentioned that most of the images are scans of old postcards with photos licensed from European and Asian amatuer and professional photographers. Most of the images have been "cleaned up" and posterised by Murthi.
The photos have been credited to the site that we found them from, R.S Murthi, as the names of the photographers could not be found. It would be great if you could drop us a comment should you happen to know the names of any of the photographers.
