Faces of the river folk

Going through the archives I see so many portraits of people from that time. Here is a selection of some of them. Faces from the river.

  1. Wonderful pictures. So many memories came flooding back. If you could post one at a time, perhaps, we could add stories to each picture. Just an idea. :)

    The man with the rattle .. called gialong? That's the one where there is a Teochew Opera about the gialong chek?

  2. I think its good idea Vic, assuming i can remember of course. I just wish there was a way to know that you are not my one and only fan whose interested....:)

  3. Look at the number of hits on this blog and in the facebook page and you will know in the number of fans you have. :)

  4. This is such an excellent blog, with so many really interesting photos and quirky texts - please may we have more?
