This 1993 photograph shows a top view of the workers' quarters, and their garden plots, at the old Singapore Turf Club at Dunearn Road. The Turf Club was founded by Scottish merchant William Henry Macleod Read and began as the Singapore Sporting Club in 1842. The Turf Club moved to its new premises at Kranji in 1999, and was officially opened in 2000. Title devised by Library staff.
