synapseman mourns the loss of Tyersall House, built in 1854 by William Napier, rebuilt in 1892 by Sultan Abu Bakar of Johor, and bombed in 1942 by the Japanese:
I just read in today's Strait's Times (9 August, NDP supplement) that Tyersall House is going to be torn down.
I'm very upset with that because I feel that the place is really, really, really beautiful. And it's not just another big house. It's got history behind it. So what's next? Condo? Shopping centre?
