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)"
Holland Village situated opposite the Chip Bee Estate.
My thanks to Peter Chan for these following photos of Holland Village and Bukit Timah
Holland Avenue with Holland Village on the left and Taman Warna on the right.
Bukit Timah Where Beauty World once stood, which was the main retail area of Bukit Timah. Bukit Batok TV Tower is in the distance.
Another view of where Beauty World once was. A new modern shopping centre has been built near by, named Beauty World.

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.
The Halfway House stood where this junction is now.
Another view of the junction and where the Halfway House was.
