Emerald Hill Road house, door, 1967 : close-up [4]

Reproduction Available:

This 1967 photograph shows some details of a shophouse's swinging doors (pintu pagar). The top of the door shows a relief depicting the Chinese dragon in what seems to be its pursuit of the dragon pearl. The pintu pagar is a typical feature of Peranakan houses that allow in breezes while maintaining privacy. Title devised by Library staff.
