Holland Village Singapore 2005

Holland Village - 2005

Peter writes:- "Holland Village today is so much different from the 1960s.  Lorong Mambong and Lorong Liput were two roads bordering the old 2-storey shophouses (top right corner of photo).  The shop houses in turn faced the Chip Bee flats.  To the right of the taxi stand is Taman Warna which was a haven for married British military families (Jalan Kelabu Asap, Jalan Merah Saga, Jalan Kuning)"

The old Bukit Timah Post Office would have stood where the trees are with it's main entrance just over the foot bridge you can see in the photo.  The Post Office was to the right of the Halfway House Night Club and Restaurant.
