Commercial square [Fullerton Square], 1906

Scope and Contents

269 x 208 mm. A similar view to BAM 1/21 but showing a band and company of Indian soldiers marching through the square. These are identified in 'Singapore retrospect through postcards' (Tan, 1982, p. 119) as being members of the Madras Infantry marching through the square after an official reception in 1906. The exact occasion is not identified but, judging from Straits Settlements Reports for 1906 (cd. 3729-4) the most noteworthy official visit was that of Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught, in early February who was on his way to Japan to invest the Mikado with the Order of the Garter; this ceremony may have been connected with the event. From the position of the shipping in the harbour, the photograph was evidently taken on the same occasion as BAM 1/21.
