Connell House bar?

Connell House bar?

Could this be the small bar in Connell House Singapore circa mid 50's.
The tiles are the same as the ones round the swimming pool.

Heading up into town and halfway up Anson Road the old site of Connell House is on the right hand and where a Shell gas station now stands and I bet they don't have dances there every Saturday night anymore!!

Stayed at Connell House on a few occasions as a Shell Apprentice in the late 50,s, awaiting trensfer to and from one of the Eastern controlled fleet.In my opinion probably one of the best seamens establishments of all. The beer was also great and the dances fantastic. Fell in love with a young lady there, but thats another story! Yes,a place I will always remember. Colin
