Malayan Spring

In the period between the aftermath of Japanese surrender and the 1948 proclamation of 'Emergency', the Communist Party of Malaya operated openly and publicly with offices set up in Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh and Singapore.

This is a very rare photograph of the open office of CPM in Kuala Lumpur. The area was called Foch Avenue and is now Jalan Tun Cheng Lok. It is somwhere near the Petaling Street.
