This 1968 photograph depicts some decorative mosaic tiles featuring a patchwork quilt pattern. These were seen in the main hall of a temple on Telok Ayer Street. These terracotta ceramic tiles were once commonly used in Peranakan-styled houses and sometimes along the five-foot ways outside shophouses. Title devised by Library staff.
