This 1983 photograph shows Pagoda Street, from an overhead bridge, with rows of shophouses along both sides of the street. Street vendors line the street from end to end. High-rise buildings of the central business district can be seen in the background. Pagoda Street has since been converted into a pedestrian mall, leading to the entrance of Chinatown MRT. Title devised by Library staff.
