Don't let the oldies have it easy. Just do what you have done for the metronome.

Why do you want to remove the 2 women from the photo? Afraid that we identify them too? :p

afraid that with your power of deduction you would be able to link the two women with the present use of this place/building.

How come there is a playground on the lawn?

Kriegsmarine Headquaters (Stützpunkt-Office) at 25 Gilstead Rd ,Singapore.

Last time used to home to Spastic Children's Association of Singapore. Now it is at Pasir Ris Drive 1.

Now it is Grace Childcare Centre.

I also know how to read pixelated sign - it says "Gracefields".

Icemoon - I am no oldie, okay?

Eh, all of you have children. That's old enough to me.

Next time must set quiz the jigsaw puzzle way. There are jigsaw puzzle computer games that accept your picture. Then take a screenshot with the pieces mixed up. Lol, so evil right?
