This 1992 photograph depicts Amber Road, including views of the Chinese Swimming Club (CSC) extension, and views of houses no. 23 and 19 Amber Road (from the upper floor of no. 21 Amber Road). Founded in 1905, CSC was the Chinese answer to the Europeans-only Singapore Swimming Club set up in 1894. Today, the club at Amber Road has new sporting facilities and is a landmark institution for training swimmers in Singapore. Title devised by library staff.
