Bukit Timah Road, northwards from overhead pedestrian bridge at Watten Drive : general view

Reproduction Available:

This 1993 photograph shows a tree-lined Bukit Timah Road (from overhead pedestrian bridge at Watten Drive, northwards). Bukit Timah is Malay for tin hill, which is a misnomer, since no tin has ever been found in the area. Timah could also be a mispronunciation of temak, the Malay name for a species of tall rainforest tree. Title devised by Library staff.
