Here it is, followed by an aerial view of the same location taken in 1958.
Notable differences you can observe from the plan of 1951 to the finished estate would be the addition of the 2 blocks of 7-storey flats, with Elizabeth Drive extended to these 2 blocks.
The primary school was built in 1955 which was a later addition to the estate.
There were 2 badminton courts instead of the 3 planned (site of the future community centre in 1963).
The open space in front of Blk 21 was given to a car park and the Green Bus terminus.
In appreciation for what Peter had done for me, I was thinking that it would be such a shame if you were just to browse and look at the above pictures as just an illustration.
Thus, to make it more meaningful, I would like do a roll call of everyone who used to live there and who has visited this blog.
I know a lot of ex-residents can't remember the block number or even house number.
Once we get the ball rolling, hopefully the details will help to jog the memory for others.
I am hoping ex-residents will recall neighbours and re-connect through this blog.
To give you a head start, I will list the house number according to the blocks.Some will recall that block numbers were only introduced in the late 60s so earlier residents may only know house numbers.
