This 1983 photograph shows North Boat Quay (from South Boat Quay, near Ellenborough Market). There are shophouses along the bank of the Singapore River, as well as a godown in the centre of the photograph. The road along the quay, which is also named North Boat Quay, has been turned into a pedestrian mall with the restoration and redevelopment of Clarke Quay in the 1990s. Title devised by Library staff.
