Sculptures Trail along Singapore River - The River Merchants

The River Merchant Sculpture was located infront of Maybank Tower Singapore along Singapore River. Maybank is the sponsor of these sculptures. The sculptor was Aw Tee Hong.

The sitting sculpture is one of Singapore's earliest merchants, Mr Alexander Laurie Johnston, interacting with the local merchants.


The sculpture of these coolies(workers) loading goods onto a bullock cart, a common sight during the earlier days of Singapore.

So interesting to see these sculptures of old Singapore where I remember the city the way it was in the 1950's.
Thank you for sharing these.
