This site contains photographs of Singapore.
Some were taken when we lived there as a family back in the early
1960's and some were taken on my last visit in November 2005.
Portsdown Road, one of the remaining areas that was untouched
for almost 40 years has undergone a significant transformation
in the last 12 months. Slim Barracks is now gone and the
bio park is expanding into the area. However, there are
still parts of Portsdown Road that you can stand on and be
transported back to 1960. The married quarters and the
flats are still there. Some are being renovated.
They are now referred to as "Black and Whites" and are still all
over the island. The ones close to Changi Village remain
almost unchanged, but I cannot remember them as well as the ones
in Portsdown Road. In the main, Wessex Estate is still
there in all its splendour. All of the "new" pictures have
been taken using a Nikon D70s. The older ones have been
scanned in from coloured slides or still captures from video.
