In my previous blog post, inSingapore: NLB’s Sungei Road Heritage Trail, I wrote a bit about the Sungei Road Heritage Trail organised by the National Library Board.

Thought I’d just add this. Below are a couple of my favourite pix from that day. They capture something of the personality of these men engaging in traditional trades in Singapore.

Mr Tan, who runs a second-hand goods business in Singapore, showing an old meter to a group. Hes demonstrating where you mustnt put your fingers when the meter is fully charged -- you made get a rude shock!

Mr Lam, probably one of Singapores oldest roadside cobblers (he plies his trade in the Sungei Road area), seen here in a spot of negotiation with a customer.
