clock tower of Sultan Abdul Samad building and Kuala Lumpur Tower behind it.
The Sultan Abdul Samad Building is located in front of the Dataran Merdeka - literally the Independence Square. Designed by British architect A.C Norman, it was built in 1897 with a unique Moorish-style design. It is a building with a sentimental value, which witnesses the scene of the annual independence celebration.
And now after 51 years, Malaysia had go through a rapid development, which can be observe by its tall buildings. One of it is KL Tower, which was constructed in 1996.

Nice observation about both elements, imagine if there wasnt that tower behind but just the Sultan Abdul Samad Builing it would be a great picture but still, this is an excellent picture and the tower behind give us the whole story about how modern building are growing up so much. I do agree how you named this picture "old & new" cause in this particularly picture that building behind is a very important element of composition cause is telling that in front of that building there is something beautiful constructed many years ago and in the back there is us catching up with these old beautiful structures. good note!
