I always like to look at Pre-War Buildings - whether in Melaka, Penang, Behrang or Singapore. They look almost similar in design and architecture and most of them truly show sign of age, wear and tear. This all depends whther the respective governments want to restore them and gazzette them as Historical Buildings or raze them down to make way for new designer buildings. These 2 photos show two of the buildings, adjacent to one another, near Central Market. At least they were given new coats of paint and the current tenant showed signs of preserving them.
