This 1983 photograph shows the exterior of shophouses at Boat Quay (from Ellenborough Market). The shophouses feature wooden French windows at the second floor and balconies at the third floor. The road along the quay, also called North Boat Quay, has been turned into a pedestrian mall with the restoration and redevelopment of Clarke Quay in the 1990s. Title devised by Library staff.
