Last Ride to Parliament

Posted by Lai Chan See (Singapore, Singapore) on 28 March 2015 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Lee Kuan Yew, Founding Father of Singapore, passed away on 23.03.2015 at age 91 years. His casket, draped in the national flag, was brought on a gun carriage to Parliament House where he will lie in state until the funeral tomorrow, 29.03.2015. Thousands lined the streets to bid farewell to this remarkable man who built a prosperous nation in the course of 50 years, a nation that wields influence internationally far beyond what its tiny size deserves.
