We browsed through Victor Koo's archives and really enjoyed his pix on Clarke Quay and the Singapore skyline.

We then went digging through the National Archives's online repository and looked for corresponding images.

Browsing through the photo repository sure invokes a strong feeling of nostalgia.

I like the photo by Victor Koo of Clarke Quay too. I wonder when it was taken? Thanks for sharing.

Hi Oceanskies79, I believe you may be referring to Clarke Quay photo reproduced from the National Archives on this blogsite instead. The one on mine is a modern-day photo which I swiped from an image search on the web (looking very red-faced). Gosh, I hope that the true owner of that photo will not sue me for copyright infringement now. You could even make out the 'reverse bungy ride' (can't remember what's the correct name) in 'my' photo.

Projectm, you may want to answer Oceanskies79's query instead. Since the godowns were still around, the photo must have been taken before (or way before) the early 1980s which was the time when Clarke Quay went commercial.

Thanks Victor. It was dated 1970s in the archives page I checked, oceanskies.
