To the left is the Padang. The buildings were constructed of wood and atap before regulations were enacted by Swettenham in requiring buildings to use bricks and tiles. The appearance of Kuala Lumpur transformed rapidly and greatly in the following years.
Early Kuala Lumpur was a small town that suffered from many social and political problems — the buildings were made of wood and atap palm frond thatching that were prone to fire, lack of proper sanitation plagued the town with diseases, and it suffered from a constant threat of flooding.
The town became embroiled in the Selangor Civil War due in part to the fight for control of revenues from the tin mines. Yap escaped to Klang where he reassembled a fighting force. Kuala Lumpur was recaptured by Yap in March when Raja Mahdi forces were defeated with the help of fighters from Pahang.
The slump lasted until latewhen a rise in the price of tin allowed the town to recover. That the town was rebuilt a few times and thrived was due in large part to the tenacity and persistence of Yap Ah Loy. Inthe state capital of Selangor was moved from Klang to the more strategically advantageous Kuala Lumpur by the colonial administration, and the British Resident William Bloomfield Douglas then decided that the government buildings and living quarters should be located to the west of the river.
Government offices and a new police headquarters was built on Bukit Aman, and the Padang was created initially for police training. He also stipulated in that buildings should be constructed of brick and tile so that they would be less flammable, and that the town be rebuilt with wider streets to reduce fire risk.
This resulted in a distinct eclectic shop house architecture typical to this region. Kapitan Yap Ah Loy expanded road access in the city significantly, linking up tin mines with the city; these roads include the main arterial routes of the present Ampang RoadPudu Road and Petaling Street.
Law reforms were implemented and new legal measures introduced to the assembly. Yap also presided over a small claims court. With a police force of six, he was able to uphold the rule of law, constructing a prison that could accommodate 60 prisoners at any time.

It was only 0. The growth of the rubber industry led to an influx of foreign capital and planters, with new companies and industries becoming established in Kuala Lumpur, and other companies previously based elsewhere also found a presence here.
Despite suffering little damage during the course of the battle, the wartime occupation of the city resulted in significant loss of lives; at least 5, Chinese were killed in Kuala Lumpur in just a few weeks of the occupation by Japanese forces, and thousands of Indians were sent as forced labour to work on the Burma Railway where a large number died.
