Old Singapore Quiz (19) - Another Old Cannon
I stumbled upon another old cannon yesterday. (The other old cannon is here. Well, sort of.)
Incidentally, did you know that 車大炮 ("cheh dai pao" in Cantonese or "che da pao" in Mandarin) means to lie?
So here are my questions for this quiz:
1. Where does this cannon lie (pun intended)?
2. Who presented this cannon?
3. When was it presented? (Just the year will do.)
Of course, to prevent eagled-eyed readers like Icemoon from having an unfair advantage, I have painted over the plaque in front of the stand. Not with real paint but digitally with Photoshop.
Answers will be revealed in a week's time. And they won't be lies, I can assure you.
