The site of the old Ellenborough Market should be at SOHO@Central, located on the south bank of upper Boat Quay. Definitely not the Swissôtel Merchant Court location.

i believe the old location of the 'dry goods' market is along side new bridge road, just before the singapore river. those high rise hdb blocks were next to the river, commanding an excellent view of the fort canning park and the river. no wonder it had to go when clark quay and its neighbouring precincts were being redeveloped.

I believe the loc should be the new Central shopping mall where clarke quay mrt is

No, not the new parliament house. Roughly between the Merchant Court Hotel and SOHO@Central, as someone mentioned earlier. Long before it shifted to the Jurong Port Rd, the fish wholesale market was next to Ellenborough Market, just beside the Singapore River where all the fishing trawlers, the majority of which from Indonesia beth beside it to unload their catch. Those days, the river stink especially at low tide and Ellenborough Market used to be crowded with the coolies enjoying their meals at the food stalls there.
