This is a 1950s photograph of a street in Chinatown where there are two roads of shophouses, one along each side of the road. This is a rustic scene where many children are walking around barefooted and laundry being hung out to dry, showing the everyday life of the people in the past. Part of a compiled album, with a label : "PHOTOGRAPHS BY : R.K. TYERS. Staff STRAITS STEAMSHIP CO., LTD. SINGAPORE." Date of creation estimated. Title devised by Library staff.
