This 1967 photograph shows the exterior of some shophouses on Tembeling Road. Featured on the upper level of each shophouse are three full-length casement windows. One of the shophouses has swinging doors (pintu pagar) in front of its main door. These swinging doors are typical of Peranakan houses, allowing in breezes while maintaining privacy. Title devised by Library staff.
