It would be interesting to see, how to build the first skyscraper, Singapore lived at the mercy of the British, walk on the pre-war Berlin area or wonder, both hated the Eiffel Tower. Spots past still remain in these cities. Let's go back a hundred years ago, and see, What has changed since that time.

New York 1917 year.

If you look at the business district of the city now and then, we can see, how few high-rise buildings was 1917 year. At that time, most tall skyscrapers in the city and the world was Woolworth Building. This luxurious office belonged to the company "Woolworth", which invented and supermarkets, where the goods can be taken directly from the shelves. Near the headquarters of the "Singer", which was demolished due to the very small office space. Manhattan had not yet had the Walt Street, no Empire Street, Our Chrysler-building, but even then the city has been a high-rise.

Venice 1910 year.

Since then, no significant changes. Those churches, churches, palazzos and bridges. Even the old Rialto bridge has not changed its appearance. One hundred years ago on the bridge were also a variety of shops and stalls, where we are selling various souvenirs for tourists. There was always crowded and noisy. Venice never changes, only on 5 millimeters per year goes under water…

Singapore 1900 year.

During this period, the city was dominated by the British, who used it as the main strategic object through the overpass across the Straits of Johor and rail through the Malacca and Bangoka. Even in those days in Singapore carried workers from around the world to work with cargo. In spite of the hot tropical climate is already erected high-rise buildings. But in place of Marin Bay, where now stand the most luxurious skyscrapers, in those days it was just a wasteland.
