Merdeka 1957- newspaper front cover - Visit Malaysia

Merdeka 1957- newspaper front cover

Merdeka

Above is the picture of the front cover of New Straits Times dated 31 August 1957- the day of Malaya’s independence.

Below is a picture of Masjid Jamek in Kuala Lumpur- picture taken on 9 July, 1958.

Both pictures were taken from an advertising on a Rapid KL bus. I was walking along the road when the pictures on the bus caught my attention and I quickly took these photos with my phone camera.

We have come a long way- more than 50 years of independence.
