Gap on the map

The Gap on Pasir Panjang/ Kent Ridge, on a map. This was commonly called the Gap before the 80's and some herbarium records even list "The Gap". This was mysterious to us biology students until someone must have told us, likely D H Murphy.

Pity the Gap is right where the rather brittle GSGS 4923 Series (1: 63,360) map is torn. This Edition 2-GSGS map was published in 1964 by the "D Survey War Office and Air Ministry."

Must pass to the Herpnet team to catalogue tomorrow. I suspect I need to figure out map citations too.
