Presenting for the first time through the illustrations of 500 postcards from the author’s private collection, this book offers a rare and comprehensive glimpse into the changing landscapes and lifestyles of Singapore’s past, right up to the Second World War. This richly illustrated text begins by tracing the key developments in the early production of picture postcards in Singapore, before going on to provide a lively pictorial depiction of its history in the form of postcard galleries arranged by themes (i.e. rivers, buildings, celebrations, ethnic groups etc). Providing invaluable insight into the postal history of Singapore, this volume is essential for anyone interested in postcards and history, and the island state of earlier times.
