A stroll through Singapore's downtown core area.
While looking out for typical Singaporean objects, we came across this nice place - ideal for shooting panoramics of course - which holds a view to old and modern buildings with some greenery around.
On the left hand side we see the Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall, which was built in the mid of the 19th century. From the beginning until today the building served for a variety of purposes such as public events, political meetings, exhibitions, musical and stage performances. During WWII the memorial hall was used as a hospital for victims of bombing raids by the Japanese forces during the Battle of Singapore. See also an article on Wikipedia with pictures from the past.

Sehr interessant. Und die Hochhaustürme kommen nicht an die Wolkentürme ran... VG Martin

Die Wolkentürme machen den Reiz aus. Die Natur schafft es doch (noch) den Menschen zu übertreffen.
