Raffles Place, 1962 : general view [5]


This photograph shows a section of the Raffles Place area (formerly known as Commercial Square), with a carpark in front of the Robinson's Department Store (centre) and the OUB (Overseas Union Bank) building (left). The Robinson's Department Store, with its iconic statue of Eros, was destroyed by a fire in 1972 and the current site is now occupied by the OUB Centre. The Raffles Place MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) Station now occupies the area where the carpark stood. Title devised by Library staff.
