I am a nostalgic guy, and I have good memory, so I smiled when I saw these pictures of Penang in the 80s. I did not take these pictures but I will acknowledge the owners if known, most of them are found in the Internet.
This one is found on Facebook, Penang Rd. ~ Komtar February 1981. Photo courtesy of Michael Lim Jit Boo.
Komtar in the in thing place to go in the 1990s. This image shows the building of the foundation of Komtar. Sadly things have deteriorated for Komtar in the new millenium, I would not even go to certain areas of Komtar at night without some weapons at hand.
