Old photos of the Pegu Club

မြန်မာဘာသာဖြင့် ဖတ်ရန်

The main staircase and dining room at the Pegu Club in 2015 and a photo of the club in the 1910s. Rudyard Kipling stayed at Pegu Club for a night in 1889 (on his way from Calcutta to San Francisco). Over dinner he heard the stories which led him to write ""The Road to Mandalay"". The Pegu Club is located on Prome Road (Pyi Road) opposite the Taw Win Centre. (Not sure of the photo credit for the first two photos - please let me know if you did, or if they are your photos and you would like me to either credit you or take them down)
