PICTURE THIS

Favourite pastime

The game is on and all eyes are on the draughts boards, except the one who is catching a wink. This was the scene in July 1979 at a Victoria Street coffee shop . A favourite pastime among many Singaporeans at that time, the game was such a hit in the Victoria area that people used to play it into the wee hours of the morning.
