This 1992 photograph depicts a swimming pool at the Chinese Swimming Club (CSC) at Amber Road. Founded in 1905, CSC was the Chinese answer to the Europeans-only Singapore Swimming Club set up in 1894. Today, the club at Amber Road has new sporting facilities and is a landmark institution for training swimmers in Singapore. Beyond the walls of the club can be seen several high-rise apartment blocks. Title devised by Library staff.
