Gambier Street in 1960's

Gambier Street and Java Street in the 60's - the old Central Business District of Kuching in the past where merchant trade spice, textile & almost everything under the sky, coffee shops. hawker stalls, buses & taxis waiting for passengers, upriver & coastal vessels unloading bananas, coconuts & other local fruits. 

However some buildings have been demolished including shutting down of the wet market due to hygiene concerns, to make way for the waterfront extension project.
