Images of the old Batu Pahat
Kim's Park, the amusement park at Jalan Mohd Akil. Once a focal point for families, it gave way to a number of office blocks
This photo shows Jalan Edrus in 1914. There are Japanese flags all over the place, indicating the increasingly powerful Japanese presence in the country. What were the Japanese doing here in 1914? The Japanese occupation only began in 1942. According to some sources, the Japanese were already operating an iron ore mine at Sri Medan and later a bauxite mine, which is the site of the present Tasik Bukit Pasir.
