Can you spot the difference?

Location: Block 43 & 36 Moh Guan Terrace
2008 Moh Guan Terrace

For the 1950's picture, the building on the left has open balconies whiles the 2008 ones are covered up with concrete.

It is the same for the buildings on the right. HDB put in the windows in 1973 when they sold the units to the tenants.

The substation is still there but a fence surrounds it now.

I bet you could spot more differences and I shan't rob you of the fun.
