This 1982 photograph depicts kampong houses, amidst lush greenery, at the junction of Jalan Kampong Tengah and Punggol Road. Punggol, also spelt Ponggol, means "hurling sticks" - a method of bringing down fruits off fruit trees - in Malay. This indicates that Ponggol was a renowned fruit-growing district. Title devised by Library staff.
