Back on Cavenagh Bridge

This is a tongkong which has been converted from carrying cargoes to carrying passengers and tourists. Its signature look is the pair of big eyes, one on each side of the boat. It has retained its original colour of the past except for the top that has been added on.

Looking out to the river mouth is the Anderson Bridge. Another historic bridge built by the Colonial Government and named after the Straits Settlements' Governor. Like the Cavenagh Bridge, both were made of steel. There were several bridges linking the two sides of the Singapore River.
