Now you see him, now you don't, a new bridge is born.

Elgin bridge stands at the spot where Singapore Rivers first bridge ,a wooden drawbridge built at the same point. It was replaced in 1922 and named after an Indian Gov-general,Lord Elgin. I am fortunate in possessing two post cards, one "before" and the other "after".
  Take a look at the two photos captured at a short interval apart from the same vantage point and see if you can spot the difference
