Singapore. Suburban, police station

This postcard features a coloured picture showing a suburban scene of Singapore in the 1900s. It shows a road in the middle. On both sides of the road are single-storey buildings made mainly of wood. Further down, beyond the buildings, are trees lined along the road. In the foreground on the left, a man is leaning on the fence of a building, looking across the road. At the other side of the road, a woman and a girl are seated inside a rickshaw with a man standing beside them. Behind them is another rickshaw pulled by a man. The back of the postcard is unwritten. Date of creation estimated.
