The Lido Cinema265 viewsThe Lido Cinema at the junction of Orchard and Scotts Road. The present Lido, at the top of the atrium of another shopping centre, is reached by a number of vertiginous escalators - all made by Schindler, as I noticed when I came out of the auditorium with a hushed audience after seeing Schindler's List!

Looking down Orchard Road towards CK Tang278 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 Road239 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.
