[Photos] 21 Rare Old Photos of Kuala Lumpur Through the Decades

If you’ve enjoyed our collections of old Saigon photos so far, this set of rare images of Kuala Lumpur taken throughout the 20th century might pique your interest.

Compiled by an archivist only known by the initials R. S. Murthi, the images are mostly digital scans of postcards that have been cleaned and posterized. The Malaysian capital’s vernacular architecture and landmarks are the focal point of the album, with the most recognizable being the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, known for its unique mix of western and Mughal styles.
