Shenton Way, 1978 : panoramic view



This photograph gives a view of the Shenton Way skyline from around what is now the reclaimed Marina Bay area. Landmarks in this photograph include International Plaza, DBS (Development Bank of Singapore) Tower, CPF (Central Provident Fund) Building, UIC (United Industrial Corporation) Building and Hong Leong Building. Many ships and bumboats (also called twakows or tongkangs) can be seen in the waters, perhaps because Tanjong Pagar Terminal is nearby. Title devised by Library staff.
