An Interview with an Old Resident By sgchinatown
Mdm. Wan Lau Fong, born 1926, old resident of Chinatown

We can hear about the cramped conditions of houses in the past and see recreations of such an environment, but nothing beats hearing a first-hand account from someone who has lived through it. Mdm. Wan describes the house and the conditions that she lived in, and how carelessness by the night-soil man would spell disaster for the whole house.
