Reminiscing The Past (1)

Images of the old Batu Pahat

Taken in the fifties, these photos show a Batu Pahat that is long gone. I am sure that many young people have no inkling as to what it looked like in the past.

A view of the Batu Pahat river. On the left are presumably buildings housing the customs department

A ferry transporting buses filled with passengers to the opposite side of the river. In the foreground the building with the prominent cupola still stands. Before the bridge connecting both sides of the river, transportation was by boat and ferry
