Car Service Centre at Campbell Street .....


But alas, it has already closed (the sign on the glass door says so) by the time the father and child (left of pic.) reached the car service centre to collect their car. The car must be his since he is wearing three-quarter pants - most Malaysian wear shorts or three-quarters pants whenever they go to car service centre. No?? Smile


The posture of the guy who wears long pants on the right tell us he is there to admire that vintage Hilman(?). The ceiling lights and glass panel indicate that this car service centre is renovated from an old shoplot as they still maintain those mosaic tiles.


Jewelleires, textiles but this "drawing" shows us there is a car service centre at Campbell Street too ..... Smile

Orange, that is not a car service centre. It is some sort of cultural centre and live Chinese music is performed during the daytime. I think it just opened and so I have not heard what kind of Chinese music is being played there. You are right, that car looks like a Hillman Minx or a Sunbeam Rapier.

Ha ha Kayes, it must be my imagination - it went wild!! Smile


I know Campbell Street is famous for textile because we have a relative who had a textile shop along this street. Their textile business started in Siam before it branched out to Penang and later to Ipoh too. But in Ipoh, the small agent for textile changed to other business ever since textile business was not so lucrative.
