Magnolia Snack Bar and Gluttons Square

This stretch of old Orchard Road holds such good memories for me. The split level Magnolia snack bar where an ice cream sundae treat was only for truly special occasions. And right opposite was Gluttons Square which comes alive at night with hawkers on push carts. Based on the Setron colour TV billboard, this picture was probably taken in the early 70's when colour TV was one of the biggest thing to happen. I was then studying at Singapore Chinese Girls' School close by at Emerald Hill Road and this area was my frequent little haunt.

Gluttons Square just opposite Cold Storage( where Centrepoint is today)
