Emphasising the topographical and architectural landscape of the city and its surrounding environs, this visually irresistible city tour of rare and iconic photographs from the 1840s to the early 1900s will transport readers back to the Singapore of an earlier age, a city that has now changed beyond recognition. The vibrant old metropolis is brought back to life through insightful captions and mostly albumen prints, the dominant photographic medium of the second half of the 19th century. This pictorial book tells two stories of Singapore – the rapid development of the newly colonised city as well as the evolution and progress of early photography.
