No sign of NUS, which means this directory was published before 1980/1 when SU and Nantah mergered and subsequently moved to Kent Ridge.

ACJC not indicated on the map where Rochester Park is, which means it was published before 1977.

Tanglin Integrated Sec. Tech Sch was renamed to Tanglin Tech Sch in 1970.

Hence, between 1970 to 1977.

Note that Ghim Moh estate is not indicated. Does anyone know when Ghim Moh was constructed? Should be after 1975. Anyone can confirm this?

well, AYE was built around 1986, and since it is still showing Sapper Ave it would be before Science Park was built. Should be 1981? I know that Gloucester Barracks was still around in 1981 (took my SAF 'unang' there, to drive tank :rolleyes: ) so my guess is the 1981 edition ;)
