SINGAPORE: After an online page shared a 1967 photo of Orchard Road, a handful of Singaporeans were left feeling nostalgic, many sharing their fondest memories of the old Singapore.

Community Facebook page The Long and Winding Road shared an old photo on Sunday (Aug 13), which elicited a nostalgic response from a handful of Singaporeans.

The black and white photo featured a 1967 photo of Orchard Road with National Day decorations. “The famous car park by day, supper spot by night is on the left of the pic and the Magnolia Snack / Milk Bar is on the right,” the post read. “Further down, we can also see the meeting of Emerald Hill Road and Orchard Road.”
