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?
