Singapore Post Centre

Singapore Post Centre

  • Nikon D7000, 18-200mm f3.5-5.6
  • At f6.7, 1/750 seconds, ISO 100.
  • Program mode, auto white balance, center weighted metering.
  • Picasa: no editing.
Just thought that it looked cool, retro Art Deco. Like many buildings in Singapore, it's part shopping centre and part office building. Right next to Paya Lebar ("wide swamp") MRT station.The radiator in the middle, is the top of two external glass lifts (elevators). You can see the two tracks on the wall.

Singapore Post is the name of the mail service here, so the name of the building can be understood as "Singapore Post, Centre," not "Singapore, Post Centre."

Singapore is supposed to follow UK English, but with so much US media here, everyone gets mixed up. The names of places are still quite consistently spelt (spelled) in UK English: "centre" instead of "center." I've been trying to standardise (standardize) my own spelling to US, but of course I can't change the spelling of names of places.
