This 1966 photograph shows a two-storey shophouse on Tembeling Road. It has decorative fretwork fascia underneath the eave of the roof. The swinging doors (pintu pagar) are a typical feature of Peranakan houses, allowing in breezes while maintaining privacy. Moulded plaster relief elements are seen below the casement windows. Date of creation estimated. Title devised by Library staff.
