This 1970 photograph shows a shophouse, from the late style at Emerald Hill Road. The second storey of the shophouse features full-length French windows that are separated by decorative pilasters topped with Corinthian capitals. Emerald Hill Road, located off Orchard Road, was associated with the Peranakans in the 1930s as almost half the houses were owned by them. Title devised by Library staff.
