The Cobbler And His Clients And His AudienceSingapore 2016: Chinatown – The Cobbler, His Clients, And His Audience

Though Singapore has developed into a modern, cosmopolitan and urban city, traditions still hold strong in certain locations. Perhaps they will disappear or change dramatically in another 30 years, as new generations are born with different points of view and ambitions in this ever-changing world. I am sure the cobbler-in-the-street here should probably vanish in that time frame. I was actually surprised to find them still active along the streets of Chinatown. Old neighbours, friends and customers still gather round for a time of comfort and familiarity. An image that one day may end up in the archives of history for this country. – WY
