Archive (New York Dolls)

Getting addictive this Facebook thingie. Especially when I stumble upon groups championing for causes or interests I can  relate to or simply like this particular one, archiving old pictures of Malays contributed sometimes by their descendants, mainly in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei. Some are truly gritty stuff, like that of freedom fighters and mystical figures, in their heyday and a few, in death. There are also a few of famous personalities and those from the political arena.

But what I find most fascinating are the pictures that really capture the poignant moments of their lives. The top 6 are a few of my favourite ones. The first 2 artistically captured, the following 3, their livelihoods, and the last one I find very nostalgic personally. The old television, most likely a Telefunken, in its wooden casing and stand taking centrestage while the children gawk in front of it.

Already contributed a few pictures from my personal collection to the site and most likely will scan a few more soon.

  1. BC: I remember watching Rawhide and Combat while sitting in our living room. Together with like 20-30 kampung folks…The black and white tv was the real star attraction just as how my grandad’s record player and radio were. My late great grandfather actually went behind the tv to look for where these little people came from.

  2. Hehehe … that’s funny.
