Wall Murals At Jalan C.M.Yusuff, Ipoh.

About 2 weeks ago, after an early breakfast in town, hubby drove home through another route which is the former Chamberlain Road, now renamed to Jalan C.M. Yusuff. It was a leisure drive because there was not much traffic on the road. We were looking at the large building project on the left side of the road and I spotted something of interest. I quickly requested hubby to stop by the road side and I got out of the car.
These wall paintings caught my eyes.
These were found along the wall next to the newly constructed large building.
The old Majestic Theatre which was built in the 1940's was closed down in 1998.
The old building was demolished and on its site stands this new building.
A painting of the newly constructed building.
A painting of the Majestic Theatre. That is our local town bus.
Once upon a time, the trishaws were in use.
Painting of the old Ipoh town.
Love these paintings.
These paintings help to refresh our memory of the former days of Ipoh.
Even the fashion wore were very different from our current ones.
Do you feel nostagic looking at these paintings?
Tin mining activities.
These paintings show the different methods of tin mining.
Ipoh is located in the rich tin-bearing valley of the Kinta River.
Few more shots to take before I go back to the car.
I met an elderly couple who were also interested in these wall paintings.
They approached me to help snap their photos - a very nice, loving couple. 
This high rise building project is known as "The Majestic".
Consists of 2 towers, 21 storey.
Another new attraction for Ipoh city.
A water fountain in the centre of the roundabout.
(I couldn't get a clear picture of the water fountain)
This bridge (Jambatan Sultan Iskandar) is found along the former Hugh Low Street, now renamed to Jalan Sultan Iskandar. It serves as a crossover between the new and the old town of Ipoh.

"Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word
and believes Him who sent me has eternal life and
will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.
(John 5:24, NIV)
