Description:
The Singapore River supported a vast array of native sailing craft which put the boat in Boat Quay, and a large population, many of whom lived and slept on their small craft under attap awnings. The iron bridge spanning the river is the first Elgin bridge, imported from Calcutta in 1863 and named after Lord Elgin, Governor-General of India from 1862-3. It was replaced by the arched concrete Elgin Bridge of today which opened officially in 1929.
