The family home of Ong Tiang Soon in 100 River Valley Road (later 12 Kim Yam Road) was well documented and from the images below, one can get a sense of its grandeur, starting with the plans by Ong Ewe Hai in 1889, to the plans for Ong Tiang Soon, 1908 and 1910 (revised) by architect, Chua Chang Kiat.
