This 1982 photograph shows Kampong Bahru Road, towards Jalan Bukit Merah. A row of shophouses can be seen on the left, with blocks of Housing and Development Board flats beyond them. Kampong Bahru means new village in Malay, and is so named because of the disappearance of the old Kampong Lama. Title devised by Library staff.
