This 1994 photograph shows Swettenham Road, from opposite house no. 24 Swettenham Road (towards a cul-de-sac). It shows a long stretch of the road, which is lined with trees on both sides, including the familiar banana plant. Swettenham Road was probably named after Sir Frank Swettenham, who was Governor of the Straits Settlements and High Commissioner in 1901-03. Title devised by Library staff.
