The four faces of Singapore

The Singapore River snakes past the Boat Quay shophouses as the commercial centre hovers. 

Singapore is the little island that can. Can turn a small settlement on a mosquito-infested swamp into a strategic port by an act of will. Can become a financial powerhouse by being sufficiently British whilst remaining distinctly, impenetrably Asian.

This photograph tells that story if you decode it. The Singapore River snakes past the colourful history of the Boat Quay shophouses. Their public shop-face is downstairs with two or three floors of mystery above. Three bridges connect the cultural and political centres in the foreground to the commercial heart of modern Singapore on the far bank.

The red tiles of the ā€œCā€ shaped Singapore Cricket Club match those atop the Victoria and Albert Concert Theatre with its lovely white clock tower. The more distant riverside Asian Civilisation Museum makes three colonial architectural templates all in a line.
