[By Tia Boon in Singapore]
Sungei Road Thief Market will soon be gone by July 2017. You can read about it here.
Whether you call it thief market or flea market, it is undeniably important part of Singapore's history. My uncles would come all the way from Johor, Malaysia to source for the parts that he wanted and brought back to repair his fridges or fans or even cars.
On this sketch which I drew on Seawhite's concertina sketchbook, I thought it was important to sketch the context too, so, I chose a view to include Sim Lim Tower and Rochor Centre which will be demolished soon. You can see my sketch of Rochor Centre here.
