Beautiful, said a tourist (or at least, I think he was one) who emerged from the Catholic Centre which is opposite this row of shophouses next to the Chinese Calligraphy Centre at Waterloo Street. "What building is it? Beautiful! I too, took a photo of it," he said to me. And I had to tell him that I didn't know either. I saw a sign on its facade, and it said "State Property". Pic: April 2014.
A tantalising glimpse of the shophouse from Queen Street, which led me to the traffic arrow and thence, to Waterloo Street.
