At the junction of Singapore's Armenian Street and Stamford Road is the Vanguard Building, aka MPH Building. A three storeyed building, it has decorative features consistent with the times when it was built in 1908. The red and white building started as the headquarters for the Methodist Publishing House. In 1963, the organization became the Malayan Publishing House with a focus on printing, publishing and distribution. It is no longer a bookstore today.
This is not the angle most people would take a picture of it, since it does not accentuate the rounded front corner. But I was walking down Armenian Road and in the background, could see the Swissotel The Stamford, one of the tallest hotel buildings in South East Asia opened in 1986. Every year this 72 storeyed hotel building is the site for a fundraising vertical marathon. Therefore, this shot.
