On the sign:

Robertson Quay
In the past, boatyards and warehouse complexes, rather than traditional shophouses, dominated Robertson Quay, which was probably named after Dr Thomas Murray Robertson, a medical doctor and Municipal Commissioner.

Commercial facilities such as Alkaff Quay and Earle Quay were established here in the early 20th century. Meanwhile, the area north of Pulau Saigon Bridge was where boatbuilders and fishermen dwelt in settlements such as Kampong Martin, which was destroyed by a fire in 1916, and Kampong Pukat, which survived until the early 1980s.
In the 1990s, Robertson Quay was redeveloped into a modern neighbourhood with housing, recreational and arts facilities.

The Singapore River Walk is adopted by American Express.
