Old Shophouses - Romanticised Legacy?

Once upon a time, old shophouses played a crucial role in providing the people in the city with a place to trade and a place to live in, all under one roof. They were very practical for its time, but as these shophouses are slowly being replaced with more practical and modern buildings, do they still have a place in our city? Elizabeth Cardosa joins us to answer the question.
