[Hotel d'Europe and tower, sideview

The picture shows the sideview of Hotel d"Europa and a tower on its left, located at the Esplanade in Singapore. The hotel began in 1857 when Frenchman J. Casteleyns started a modest establishment called the Hotel d'Europe at Hill Street. In 1860, the hotel moved to Beach Road. The hotel moved again in 1865 when Casteleyns occupied the Hotel de l'Esperance buildings at the Esplanade and renamed it the Hotel d'Europe. Castelyns managed the hotel until proprietress Mrs Hjelmstrom and Becker took over in 1869. The building was demolished and rebuilt as the Grand Hotel de l'Europe
