Historical Scenes at the Mosque's Lagoon

NOVEMBER 2, 1974 - The Bulletin is not sure when Awang M Raihan of the Audit Department took this photograph of the little clock tower beside the lagoon of the Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Mosque in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei, but we believe it was about 1962. There are only two vehicles to be seen.

Above below: The same scene as it is in 1974. Apart from the arch, the big changes are the increase in traffic – and the sprouting of television aerials.
