We used to think that Clarke quay along with Boat quay further down the bend of the river was the home of too much boozing. Well not quite the sort of pub crawl one’s accustomed perhaps somewhere in the northwest corner of Europe. A little saner perhaps.
Like Boat quay the shophouses you see now were once ‘godowns’ – aka little storehouses along the river where ‘bum boats’ plied to un/load goods. This was the equivalent of our red dot’s Dubai creek!
