Sunday Stills: History

At MOTAT, Museum of Transport and Technology, you will find things that are really old. Once they even treated anyone 60 and above free entrance, That is respect for you.



At the Currumbim Sanctuary, on the Gold Coast of Australia. The aboriginals sing and dance their aged old traditional dance they had been dancing since the beginning of time. I copied it and taught the Shasha to my students.

This power substation was built in 1942.

These Chinese antiques are the real McCoy. My friend collects them in Singapore.


This row of shophouses in Malaysia was built in the 1930s.

This Cuppage place in Singapore was built in the 1920s.

Hi Ed,

I made my own history when I ran the quarter Marathon five years ago when I was fifty. LOL

What interesting history from your part of the world! I would have liked to see the dance!

All that were pictured at the reunion were the ones left, many have already passed on. I'm glad I got invited to be part of their gathering. My neighbor has slowly been dismantling the old school, which is shameful because he is a professional builder.

MOTAT is in NZ? But the vegetation could cheat us into thinking that this is Malaysia, LOL...

Love watching Antiques Roadshow. My favorites are probably the musical instruments, Example: an old Fender Strat or an antique violin. http://tinyurl.com/26galfz
