Singapore: The Old Ford Factory

Japanese propaganda posterThis morning I undertook a reconnaissance run to the Old Ford Factory on Upper Bukit Timah Road to determine its suitability for our guests. In the early morning, clad in skimpy shorts and soaked in sweat, I attempted to engage the guard in conversation concerning access to the building for persons with disabilities. His main contribution was, ‘…it’s not open yet.’

As it was ‘not open yet’, I wandered round the grounds where I was drawn to two propaganda posters showing the invading force's vision for the region at that time.
