This 1986 photograph shows a close-up of the roof of Bukit Timah Police Post, located at Bukit Timah Road. Bukit Timah is Malay for tin hill, which is a misnomer, since no tin has ever been found in the area. Timah could also be a mispronunciation of temak, which is the name of a tree that grows in the area.
