Using a patchwork of words and images from Singapore??s residents and visitors of yesteryear, this book shares the often untold colonial past of this busy trading port while shedding light on Asian culture. Old Singapore was an eclectic trade emporium where an ethnically and culturally diverse populace coalesced under the aegis of the British Empire. It was a fascinating world filled with traders of all nations, roving bands of pirates, murderers running amok, and even the occasional flesh-hungry tiger. This collection illuminates Singapore??s often untold colonial past, giving perspective to its rapid economic development into the powerhouse it is today.
