This 1969 photograph shows the houses along Java Road, in the historic Kampong Glam area. These are the houses remaining after some of them have been demolished. Java Road was known for its masonry workshops, however, it is no longer listed in the street directory. Today, a new Java Road which was constructed in the mid-1990s allows access to Nicoll Highway from Beach Road. Title devised by Library staff.
