Geylang Road house, 1967 : close-up



This 1967 photograph shows the exterior of a house on Geylang Road. Separating the full-length wooden windows are pilasters decorated with ceramic tiles. Underneath the roof is a row of fretwork fascia, and above the windows are floral swags made from moulded plaster. This house is most likely to be in the Late Shophouse Style (1900-1940), due to the extensive use of ornamentation on its façade. Title devised by Library staff.
