Hi all.. we meet again! If you guys following the previous post on Sabah the Early Days, well here is the second part.

What you see here are some of Sabah’s early days photos during Kota Kinabalu was formerly known as Jesselton. Did you know that Gaya Street was actually first called as Bond Street.

Bond Street, Jesselton 1914

Today, Gaya Street will be closed on every Sunday for the Gaya Street Sunday market, selling lots of local foods and handicrafts, read more on ‘Gaya Street A – Z’. Until today, you can actually still see old shophouses built during the 1950s and there were few very old antique ‘Kedai Kopi’ that still exist in Gaya Street since the 1950s.
