I stumbled upon this multi-media essay by Straits Times photographer Raj Nadarajan in the Straits Times’ website.
He went to take pictures of the Natonal Stadium being demolished and turned it into a multi-media tribute to the Grand Old Dame of Kallang.
Listening to the voices brought back a lot of good memories. Looking at the photos of demolition work brought a stabbing pain, a profound sense of loss and a tear to my eye.
Click here for the link to the multi-media essay, then go to the essay “Rubble and Memories’ (the one with the picture of the National Stadium.
Here is also a link to a Wikipedia entry on the National Stadium.
And if you feel up to it, tell me some of your best memories of the Stadium.
Yours in sport
