This 1993 photograph shows the exterior of a shophouse, located at no. 56 Tras Street. The design of the shophouse is similar to the shophouses found at no. 58, 60, 62, 64, 66, 68, 70 and 74 Tras Street. The photographer's notes indicate that shophouse no. 72 has been renovated and altered in design. Some of the shophouses found in the area are conserved pre-war buildings. The street, located in Chinatown, is part of the Tanjong Pagar Conservation area. Title devised by Library staff.
