Shop Houses - Back - Arab Street Singapore

The back alley behind some of the colourful "shophouses" in Singapore's busy Arab Street. This was taken early on a Sunday morning, before the bustle.

There is a photo of the front of these shophouses

Note the "Sultan Mosque" in the distance.

As I will be leaving Singapore permanently soon, I want to share some of the sights.

I bet you didn't know that this would look a lot better LARGE On Black!

    Nice one. Like the colours and the composition. Maybe it would have been a teeny bit better if you took like three steps back.
  • Neil Howard 7y

    HAHA! I agree! It was a loooong time ago that I took this, but I do remember that if I took even one step back I would hve been on the busy road & run over in a flash ;-)

    This back lane was where my ancestors did their trade at the turn of the century till after the war. They were trading in cloth, songkok, shoes and wares.
