This 1982 photograph depicts Tanjong Pagar Road (with houses between Wallich Street and opposite new market). Tanjong Pagar means "cape of stakes" in Malay, and the road is probably named for the kelongs found in the sea near the area. The roads mentioned are in the Tanjong Pagar area. Title devised by Library staff.
