Looking down Orchard Road towards CK Tang164 viewsLooking down Orchard Road towards CK Tang (on the left), taken from Liat Towers, the stubby block which housed Donald Moore Galleries after it moved from its original premises in Clemenceau Avenue. It's amazing that there are no high-rise buildings along the length of this part of Orchard Road; compare it with today! Orchard Road was two-way traffic in the 1960s, something present-day Singapore children find hard to believe - as, also, that policemen wore short trousers then!

From Liat Towers looking up Orchard Road146 viewsFrom Liat Towers looking up Orchard Road towards Tanglin. The Thai Embassy, on the right in spacious grounds, is still there and looks exactly the same. The site must be worth billions of dollars! The wide monsoon drains are all underground now.
