Theives Market, Sungai Road, Singapore 2012
In the 1820s, the area around Sungei Road was designated by Sir Stamford Raffles, for the homes of affluent Europeans and Asians, when he divided the early settlements according to different ethnic groups. From the 1930s, Sungei Road and its surrounding roads became a flea market better known as the Thieves' Market, because all sorts of second-hand merchandise as well as contraband goods were sold here.
