Restored houses : exterior

This is a photograph of restored houses in the Joo Chiat area, with a view of a five-foot way. The distinctive swing door or 'pintu pagar' in Malay is a unique feature in these restored houses. The swing doors provide privacy in the front hall of the house, from the five-foot way outside. Title devised by Library staff.
