The old and new in the City Hall area
Planned to take a walk in the Marina promenade this morning (May21). Got off the bus at North Bridge road, and was fascinated by this view of the century-old St Andrew's Cathedral against a backdrop of the 1970's Raffles City tower.
The historic City Hall, situated just across the road from the Cathedral, and scene of many important events in singapore history, now stands empty, awaiting refurbishment. The dome of the Supreme court peeks out at the top of the photo.
I crossed the Padang, scene of cricket and rugby matches, National Day parades, and even served as a concert venue for the New York Philharmonic's first visit to Singapore! The spiked Dome of the Esplanade Concert Hall loomed in front of me as I entered the Esplanade Park, scene of many childhood frolics with Mum and Dad.
