Singapore food stall

Albert Street was a good place for food in the 1960's, there were stalls like this down both sides of the street. Each stall had a speciality, one would sell soup, another chicken, another fried rice etc.

To eat you chose a restaurant - an upstairs window table was best, and ordered your food. You could look out and see the waiter going up and down the stalls, collecting your food. It didn't matter which restaurant you chose, it was all the same food.

The food was Malay, Indian and many varieties of Chinese, and was all excellent.
