Near the Singapore estuary, there are two river-crossing bridges, one of which is the Gavenner Bridge. It is the first bridge connecting the northern banks of Henan Province in Singapore. It can be called the first bridge on the Singapore River. The old bridge built in 1868 is now closed to motor vehicles, but visitors can walk on the bridge and enjoy the river scenery. Sculptures of cats can be found on the piers of the old bridge. The miniature cat is said to be the smallest cat in the Guinness World Records, growing only in Singapore. The other is a steel bridge, named Anderson Bridge, which is mainly used by automobiles. At present, pedestrians are not allowed to pass because of road construction. The River between the two bridges is the famous Fulton Hotel, which is famous for its unique location and long history at the mouth of the Singapore River. Today, the building of this hotel looks a little short under the modern high-rise buildings around it, but its extraordinary appearance still shows the noble style. Near these two bridges, you can see the high-rise buildings around the river, which is the center of Singapore's urban area and the window of Singapore's historical development, prosperity and prosperity.
There are more than ten bridges on the Singapore River, of which Anderson Bridge, Gavenner Bridge and Elgin Bridge are the three most famous. The Cavenagh Bridge is the only suspension bridge in Singapore and one of the oldest bridges in the region. It was built in 1869 to commemorate the Duke of Edinburgh's visit to Singapore that year. It was later named after Colonel Gavenagh, then governor of the Strait Civil Land, who served for 1859-1867. Near the Gavena Bridge, there are a series of sculpture groups named "people of the river", which are composed of Kucinta Cats (a specialty of Singapore, the smallest cat in the world), the first generation, River merchants and other sculpture groups. Each group of sculptures shows the simple and simple way of life of early Singaporeans, such as "river merchants" who were working hard to carry bags of goods. Five naked boys are excitedly preparing to jump into the water from the bridge. They are vivid and full of children's interest. This is a sport that the children of the first generation of Singaporean immigrants often do. Now it is a rare sight.
Living in FULLERTON, every day in and out of the favorite is this ancient bridge with both history and beauty, how to shoot are not tired.
On the way out of the subway to Merlion Park, I found this unique bridge. Now I know it was Gavenner Bridge. Several groups of statues beside the bridge are also very special. Another building is the Bank of China. It's very kind to look at. There are also mobile cold drinks stalls, the old grandparents, they sell wafer ice cream at a very affordable price, only 1.2 new yuan each, taste superb.
Two old bridges on the Singapore River adjoin. One is the Gavenner Bridge, the only suspension bridge in Singapore, and the other is the Anderson Bridge. There were three copper cats at the end of the Gavena Bridge, once a granary by the Singapore River, and the rats were rampant, so the three copper cats were cast and the rat infestation disappeared.
Gavena Bridge is a bridge across the Singapore River, connecting the two sides of the river, near the Fulton Hotel and the Asian Museum of Civilization. It's also near the dock. It's a pedestrian area now. The bridge was built in Glasgow and brought to Singapore, named after the former governor of Singapore.
Built in the mid-19th century, he was one of Singapore's rare closed bridges, connecting the two sides of the Singapore River. On one side, the old General Post Office is now the Fuliton Hotel. On the other side, there is a museum and a statue of Raffles, across the beautiful Singapore River.
Gavena Bridge is an ancient romantic bridge, the only suspension bridge in Singapore, and one of the oldest bridges across the region. The bridge is low above the water and is built close to the Singapore River flowing through the Singapore Financial District. Among the River Bridges in Singapore, it was declared "a bridge worth preserving" by the Bureau for the Preservation of Monuments.
Gavena Bridge is one of the oldest bridges in Singapore. It connects Fullerton Hotel and Park. The bridge and its logo have remained in its original state. It was built during the British colonial period. It is interesting that the bridge was built in Scotland and transported to Singapore in stages. It was built by Indian prisoner laborers.
