This 1966 photograph shows pastel-coloured shophouses on Joo Chiat Road. The casement windows are framed by decorative pilasters. These shophouses have ornately decorated facades, suggesting that they may be in the Late Shophouse Style (1900-1940). In this style, the arrangement of three windows on the façade provides maximum ventilation. Title devised by Library staff.
