This 1967 photograph shows a house on Java Road, in the historic Kampong Glam area. The windows are fixed with old-style iron security bars, and two bird cages can be seen hanging on each side of the top window. Java Road was known for its masonry workshops, however, it is no longer listed in the street directory. Today, a new Java Road which was constructed in the mid-1990s allows access to Nicoll Highway from Beach Road. Title devised by Library staff.
