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
