Taken from Beach Road, this black-and-white photograph shows the low-rise Raffles Hotel in the foreground and high-rise buildings, including The Westin Stamford alongside sister hotel The Westin Plaza in the background. (The Westin Stamford has been renamed Swissotel The Stamford and The Westin Plaza, renamed first to Raffles The Plaza, then to Fairmont Singapore.) The then new Raffles City building can be seen partially. Title devised by Library staff.
