Bumboats on the Singapore River, 1982 : general view [4]

In this photograph, a bumboat (also called twakow or tongkang) is sailing along the Singapore River. On both sides of the Singapore River, we can see similar boats docked too. In the background, the low-rise shophouses of Boat Quay can be seen and some construction activity is still ongoing at the top right corner of the photograph. Title devised by Library staff.
