Shell House and the City Book Store, Singapore 1960

This is a picture of Shell House in the Collyer quay area of Singapore which was taken in about 1960.

Next to Shell House is the City Book Store and there is a nice selection of 1950s model cars parked in the car park outside the buildings. Although I don’t know the exact date, most of the pictures in the Singapore series seem to be dated from the early 1960s so that’s the date I’ve given it.

This picture, along with the others in the series, were taken by an RAF serviceman stationed at RAF Seletar in Singapore in the early 1960s, who used good quality 127 format film to produce some high-quality images.
