Children watching Chinese street opera

This 1972 photograph shows members of the audience seated on benches under the sun, watching Chinese street opera (also known as "wayang" in Singapore). Several people were carrying umbrellas, while watching the show. In the middle of the picture are seven girls seated in a row on a bench. One of the girls is wiping away her perspiration with a handkerchief. Photographer's notes indicate that the people depicted are at a wayang performance. Title devised by Library staff.
