In 2010, a group of friends and I went to Queenstown to take some photos of the place as I’ve heard that several buildings there were going to be demolished soon. Maybe I wasn’t that inspired by the photos that I’ve made on that day but I chucked the photos away on my hard disk and soon forgot about them.
I was reminded of the photos once again when I read in the papers that the landmark in Queenstown would finally be demolished. Regrettably, I did not take that many photos of it (compared to when I was shooting Capitol Theatre after stumbling upon the interior.)
While I was there, I also took photographs of the surroundings, including Block 39A, one of the more “popular” blocks as well as the Queenstown Library, Singapore’s first branch library. The latter is still standing, but nobody knows for how long can it remain with the rapid development and urbanisation of Singapore.
