Kayes, if my memory serves me well one of these shops is where Echo newspaper used to having their Ipoh bureau in the 70s. When did they stop publishing the Echo?

I think the National Echo (before that it was called the Straits Echo) ceased publication in 1980 or thereabouts. Incidentally, I used to write a weekly motoring column for the Echo in 78 and 79. This was to help out my friend who bought over the paper from the Yeap family in Penang.

The original Straits Echo office was located near the intersection of Brewster Road and Cockman Street, near United Optical. The paper was originally owned by the Yeap Chor Ee family from Penang. After the 'Star' was born, the Echo's fortune went downhill. Even after the change in ownership, it failed to make a comeback and circulation remained poor until it ceased publication. I got to know the both the Star and Echo offices quite well through their advertising department.
