Hi, can you please post some photos of the old KL HIlton along Jalan Sultan Ismail? Old snapshots of Tin Mine discotheque, Club Bar, Aviary Bar and other outlets/events related to the now demolished KL Hilton hotel would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
Thank you for visiting the blog, anonymous. The Tin Mine discotheque sounds interesting.
So, if anyone out there has interesting images of these locations please submit!
Have you tried going through the Old Kuala Lumpur Skyscrapercity forum for pictures? There are a ton of it there.
Hi there. That’s a great collection and vintageKL did source one or two photos from the forum. We try not to duplicate other collections though, and we want to bring something more to what’s already out there. That’s our hope for this tumblr - to inspire and encourage users to look at their own photo collections and submit their personal snapshots of KL.
do you have any pics of kampung baru? i heard that once it was a paddy field (not really sure if its true or not). my dad grew up in that area, so it would be cool to know what it was like during that era. i love the fact how we have a kampung in the middle of the city. keep up the great work bud. :)
Kampung Baru pics are, surprisingly, hard to come by in the free internet. We suspect there are tons of pictures in private collections just waiting to be shared. So get the word out - Submit to Vintage KL tumblr. Thanks for writing in!
