Have you ever wonder how Sarikei would look like from the opposite bank of Rejang River? Well, one photographer took the initiative to do that and frame this picture with the mangrove foliage. Enjoy this rare picture.
How do we know this was from the late 1945? Enlarge the picture and you will notice that the Bank Road block and Block 2 Right of Repok Road were close to completion by former Cantonese kapitan Khoo Peng Loong. These blocks were completed in 1946.
The vegetables market on the extreme right looked like it was still under construction.
The old wharf could be seen on the left (opposite the current police station). The current Terminal 1 wharf opposite Bank Road block was not up yet. Mangrove trees and sampan (boats) could be seen along the Rejang River bank.
What else can you see in this moment captured on black and white film?
