Another blast from the past! Can anyone identify the building? Former location? Oh, and apologies......I didn't take this one. :( But I've been there! :mrgreen:

Also, trivia bit......what does this building and the Merlion have in common?

Oops! My bad!

I actually meant the two buildings together. Granted the tall building is the National theater but what was the other building where the guys are walking from? The trivia question actually concerns the other building. Here is a different view.

Okay. Both of you are right on the identities of the buildings.

The trivia answer is that one of the curators of the Van Kleef Aquarium, Mr Fraser Brunner, was the designer of the Merlion back in 1964.

So I guess it's up to whichever of you two who posts first. James** right on the original photo. You on the lattter. Nobody on the trivia. :P

While we are waiting for Spunky, here's another oldie dating from 1983 or thereabouts. Where was it? Had some good times here when wife & I were still dating! Had a 73 Cortina Wagon back then.

Trivia bit - what was the first movie shown here?
