This picture was not published in some soft-porn magazine but in Straits Times

On 17 Sep, The Straits Times (ST) published an article titled, ‘A glimpse of Good Class Bungalows, the biggest and rarest houses here‘. The article talked about the launch of a book by Professor Robert Powell, and profiled a few Good Class Bungalows (GCB).

Among the GCB profiled is Ong Residence, a a 103-year-old tropical Edwardian-style bungalow. The house was originally designed by Scottish architect David McLeod Craik and built for a municipal councillor of Persian origin in 1913. ST had a set of pictures to the article taken by photographer Albert Lim accompanying the article, and among them is this one taken of the east-facing entrance lobby of the Residence.
2The picture may not be one of a butt-naked woman lounging at the lobby of the GCB and could be a bronze statue of one, but it is a tad too salacious for a national newspaper. Also, how would families with little kids react to a realistically life-sized sculpture of a naked woman in the lobby?
