Good News Story


These two photos were sent in by Johnny Ho of his friend Robert Holroyd (also known as Robert Allan).  Robert attended Bourne Secondary School and lived in Sian Tuan Avenue initially, then Serangoon Gardens. Johnny and Robert did have a reunion in the Hyatt Hotel in Singapore in the 1990s, but Johnny then lost contact.  These two photos were displayed on the 'Can You Help' page for several months when Robert's wife spotted the photos, and Johnny and Robert have now re-established contact.

Thanks to Maurice Hann for these photos which he says "I have called them "Riding Shotgun". They were taken in and around Holland Village. Health and Safety certainly didn't exist in those days!"

A few more 'Commercial' photos of Penang.

All purchased in 1955, in Georgetown.


Peter said "These were taken by myself with an old Digna Dacora b/w camera, way back in Nov./Dec.1955, hence the somewhat poor quality."
