Taxis that have disappeared
1949 Austin – The First SG London-type TaxiThe model arrived in Singapore in November 1949 as the colony’s first ever London-type taxi, causing quite a stir as pedestrians and passengers gazed at the vehicle with interest. Designed with a capacity to carry five passengers, the new taxi, however, was out of reach for most drivers due to its high cost of $7,000. It soon disappeared from the roads of Singapore..
Merlion Fun - Whisk It!
The famous water-sprouting Merlion was originally installed at the mouth of the Singapore next to the now-Fullerton Hotel in 1972. With the redevelopment of the Marina Bay and the completion of the Esplanade Bridge, the Merlion could not be seen.
Thus, the Merlion was relocated to the Marina Bay waterfront. In 2002, the statue was loaded onto a barge, hoisted over the Esplanade Bridge, placed back on a barge and floated down to the present Merlion Park.

Old Kallang Airport Tower,
City Hall/National Gallery,
