The British Invasion On Sunday Afternoons...

Recognise this place?
What building has replaced it now?
Beside the tea dances at the cinemas (25th Dec blog), tell us your weekend experience at this famous Singapore hotel. Clue: The Dukes.
More about them soon.
(In response to my earlier blog Mr Dennis Tan has been kind enough to send this photo.)

The Crown Prince Hotel presently stands in this same area along Orchard Road.

No idea at all frankly? Good idea to jog our memory.

Actually the resident band at the Prince's Hotel Garni, The Dukes, drew a roaring crowd on Sunday afternoons.

I hope to interview someone from the band soon so he can let in on some happenings.
