Traditional Trades of Little India

Traditional Trades of Little India @



Traditional Trades of Little India is a commissioned mural for ARTWALK Little India that aims to highlight the trades common to Little India when merchants and traders settled in the precinct many years ago. Located along 4 Belilios Lane, the various trades painted on the wall include the dhobi, the parrot astrologer and others that were common businesses and important to the sustenance of the settlers residing in the area. As social and economic landscapes shifted, the businesses became obsolete but today, they are still held in high regard by locals, who take pride in these eclectic trades that are part of the Little India heritage.
