Picnic At Pasir Ris beach 1st August 1955
I finished school in 1954 and started work in early 1955. But, the spirit of getting together and having fun continued after leaving school. So, a group of friends organised another picnic at Pasir Ris on 1st Aug 1955.
We went to picnic at Pasir Ris on a lorry. We did not have the luxury of an aircon bus like today. But, we had a very good time singing and laughing together
as the lorry journeyed on.
Pasir Ris then was a coconut plantation as shown in the photo background. There was a brick wall between the plantation and the beach to prevent soil erosion.
Smile, you are on condid camera!!!
Tea dance was a craze in the 1950s. All youths wanted to learn dancing. Learning at the dance studio was expensive. So, friends taught one another.
No dance floor? Anywhere would do as in this photo.
The young girl was learning to dance from the older girl . Others watched and tried to remember the steps.
