    What's New - What's Gone

     What's Gone - Thanks For The Memories!


Anderson Bridge



We have listed these closed-down places here, where they will remain in our history books, in tribute to the contributions they have made to our lives here in Singapore. For the younger generation which may have no memories of these places, the buildings and places here remind them that every generation has its own familiar hangouts. The list here comprises buildings and places which have found a place in the hearts of their parents and grandparents.

If you have anything you wish to share with us and our readers here, write them down for posterity in our Forum.


And What's Going soon...
