Photographer’s annotation on slide: “Food centre on Chin Hin Street. Singapore 05 Dec 70.” This 1970 photograph shows an open-air roadside food ’hawker’ centre on the now-expunged Chin Hin Street. The picture depicts the makeshift food stalls, and the people in the street either queuing for food or eating. The round tables and wooden stools are typical of such roadside food centres during 1970s. A young boy carrying a metal food container is seen in the foreground. Title devised by Library staff.
