1972 Singapore

313. Singapore 1972 – Tiger Balm Gardens

Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!

Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.


On the Monday, the tour flew from Bangkok down to Singapore, where this set was taken. It may be that first few are actually Thailand but I thought maybe I could bluff.

They would have flown a Thai International DC9 and then stayed at the Equatorial Hotel which is only about 100 miles away.

This is Sri Mariamman Temple Gate. All the pictures I looked up have the figures in different coloured clothes, so I guess a repaint happened.

You’ll remember from the Hong Kong set that some were taken in Tiger Balm Gardens. That one apparently has closed, the one in China closed eons ago, so this is the only one left.

    1. Thank you, but all credit goes to the photographer – a lady called Doris who would now be 99, had she lived. Me, I just scan them and wish I could see all she saw! All the best – Chris
