A bumboat is seen plying along the Singapore River in the 1960s. These lighters were vital to the commercial activity on the Singapore River located in the central region for more than a hundred years. The "Clean Rivers Campaign" in 1983, relocated these boats to Pasir Panjang. Photograph donated by Chua Ai Lin and displayed at Heritage Roadshow 2007. Date of creation estimated.
