This 1968 photograph shows the junction of Sultan Gate and Beach Road. The road sign for Sultan Gate and shophouses can be seen by the side of the road. Sultan Gate is the road that leads into the Istana Kampong Glam, currently the Malay Heritage Centre. Beach Road is one of the earlier roads developed in Singapore. It used to be fronted by the sea, now no longer visible because of land reclamation. Title devised by Library staff.
