If anyone remembers, the painting was the Jalan Sultan Lama (?), if I am not mistaken. It has been ages ago since I last saw it. That particular scene is where the current Portview Restaurant is. The Kampung Ayer used to go up right to the roadside and there used to be lots of shophouses there. I cannot quite remember what happened whether there was a fire or everyone eventually moved out because of the construction of the Yayasan Building. The BSB Muncipal Council is currently preparing for the 100th anniversary of Bandar Seri Begawan moving to dry land and I heard there will be a book. So I do hope that the book will contain all these old scenes of Bandar.
The second photo is interesting. I have no idea where this is. I found it in the old album that my brother in law showed me and I have been staring at it for the last couple of days. It would have been easier if I could just asked but I thought I will stretch my brain a little bit and ponder hard enough I would know where that is.
I am hoping readers out there would look at it and send me the answer via the comment box. It would be interesting to know what happened to the monument in the middle of the road in that photo.
The third one is easier. Someone wrote the name of the place in jawi on top of the photo. Though this one still takes a bit of imagination to know where this is. If you can read jawi, it says 'Jembatan Seria'. For those working or rather used to work in BSP and used the old Seria road would know where this is. This is the bridge immediately before reaching Seria. I haven't used that road for quite sometime now, my next question would be is this old bridge still there?
