This 1968 photograph shows most probably the living room of Botan House on Neil Road. Seen in the room is a table possibly used at times for cherki, a card game that was popular with the Peranakans. Botan House was built by Tan Kim Tian, Peranakan founder of a local shipping company in the 1800s. Title devised by Library staff.
