Central Fire Station (1909), 62 Hill Street, Singapore. The so-called streaky bacon style of architecture embodied in the fire station is usually associated with Rogue Gothic, a style more associated with churches, colleges, and public buildings in the medieval revival mode. Here it appears with more classical features. Photograph 2008 by George P. Landow.
