A similar photo was taken on this block of shop house at Hume Street in February 2010. However, the situation is completely different now, especially after the disaster occurred on July 9, 2012. First three shop houses were caught in fire & damaged at different level. As there is already no occupant & considering safety of pedestrian, the entire block is quarantined. Under such circumstances, these shop houses are in high risk of being torn down. I am very reluctant to see this happen but situation is really not optimistic. Learning from my past experience, I know I shall capture images of it before it vanishes.
