This 1967 photograph shows a shophouse at Emerald Hill Road, located off Orchard Road. Architectural features on the first storey include bat-shaped vents, as well as, swinging doors (pintu pagar) that are characteristic of Peranakan houses. Forming a decorative panel beneath the first-storey windows are wall tiles with what look like floral motifs. The second storey of the shophouse is divided into three-bays with a half-length casement window flanked by two full-length French windows. Date of creation estimated. Title devised by Library staff.
