Document a panoramic view of Singapore River on at least one of the bridges along the river.

Using photographic evidences, do you think the shape course of Singapore River will change in the future? Justify your answers.
(We know there are 2 meanings by the term 'shape', so bearing that in mind, here is our answers)

Literal: The shape will not change, CBDs are there to generate economic funds for country, if its destroyed, Singapore's economy will not do so well as compared to now.

Theoretical: It will change due to Demand and Supply. Singapore now needs land to accommodate people, possibly by transforming the Singapore river into land or expanding Singapore’s land.
It used to be a trading port. Now, it is a business district and entertainment district.

Observe the sights and sounds of the present day Singapore River. Based on your observation, make inferences to explain the activities that are carried out along the river during the early days and the present day.
Early days:
There used to be trading ports. Chinese coolies, sumsui women, boats, warehouses, peddlers were all around the Singapore river at that time. Noises of yelling of workers and peddlers were heard.

Present day:
Now, it houses business districts, tourism and a few entertainment highlights. There are tourists, business workers, tour guides and shop owners around here. The noises are mainly people talking to one another, tour guides using a microphone to explain the sights of the river.
