NO comments on Farquhar Street,such shame,the photograph you show Kayes,correct me if I am wrong,was in fact the home of Malayan Motors,or similar? now that should invite comment just as the right hand turn from Jalan Northam/Azlan Shah into Gurney drive was once the Headquarters of the Kempaitia(Spelling)where the round about now stands.Should invite comment by people who are in fact interested in the history of Pinang.Which is,in fact,Rich

hi Jim, pic above shows the former Wearne Brothers which had their showroom and workshop there. There was also a tiny Shell petrol station consisting of two pumps. Wearnes used to be the agents for British Leyland cars and also Opel, which was the odd one out.

Farquhar Street looks really spruced up these days, very different from the time when I was staying in Lim Lean Teng Mansion.

Email from Barrie Robinson (barrie@look.ca)


" I was a Mercantile Assistant with Henry Waugh & Co in the early 1950 and I have fond memories of Penang. My flat was at Kinta Hall Court on Farquahar Rd, near the E & O Hotel - wonder if that block stands. I had lots of friends in Waugh - Tony Sinclair, Ted Marchant, the Webbs and Tye Ong Hiang. I used to go to the swimming club a lot where I used to sail. Great times, great people - but such a long time ago".

hi Barrie, I hope you make it to post here Smile My memory of Kinta Hall Court is very vague. Can you remember whether it was directly opposite the E & O? I know the Lim Lean Teng Mansion which consists of many flats/apartments. The Lim Lean Teng Mansion is still there and it is indirectly opposite the E & O. And was Henry Waugh & Co in Beach Street?
