The Four Pillars of the Economy

The Four Pillars of the Economy

The Tanjong Pagar Railway Station in Singapore is on its last days being the terminal station for the Malaysian Railway. On the 1st of July, the station, railway land from the south of Singapore all the way up to the northern end will revert to Singapore land (purchased at a cost – for more information about the history and how the land was returned – check out this link – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanjong_Pagar_railway_station

At the entrance of the station stands these four statues on four separate columns. The image above is an enhanced capture of the four statues combined into one image to capture the intricate detail and craft of Rudolfo Nolli, the sculptor. With the end of the railway service, not much is known what will become of the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station. Its architecture reflect a historical period of time gone by and many hope to see it continue to be a place where the public will have access.
