Years hence, the row building still stands but gone are all the shops I mentioned above.
In its place, stood the pubs, take-aways restaurants and lounges. These are here to cater to the many sea-men who would be everywhere because what used to be really big bungalows in fron of the sea, is now part of the Singapore Port.
Thus the pubs. Here are some of the signage which I find quite amusing.
Oh well, time moves on !
