This 1966 photograph shows a restored terrace house, on Onan Road. Separating the casement windows are pilasters decorated with ceramic tiles. The ornate design of the house indicates that it is probably in the Late Shophouse Style (1900-1940). The tripartite arrangement of three windows on the facade reduces the wall space to a minimum and provides maximum ventilation. Title devised by Library staff.
