Ong Kim Seng uses the power of perspective to draw his viewers deeper into his paintings. His fluid strokes, portrayal of light and shadow and detailed features are commendable given the difficulty of watercolour as a medium due to its transparency and unpredictability. In the 1840s, the Little India area consisted of residential housing as a race course had been completed and watching horse races was a popular activity for the Europeans. Cattle trading was also carried out as the area was located close to the Serangoon River. Employers needed Indian migrant workers to help with the business of cattle trading, and this also led to an influx of Indian immigrants hoping to make a living in other trades. The Indian community in the area grew, leading to a proliferation of goods and services as well as places of worship such as the Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple that was built in 1855.
