<Description>

Over 1,200 rare, fascinating and beautiful images vividly bring Singapore’s history to life – including the first ever photographic portrait taken in 1843; the lyrical landscapes produced by the early professional studios; evocative portraits that reveal the faces of a cosmopolitan city; the efforts of early amateurs to capture a colonial city less polished and perfect than in postcard views; the gritty shots of photo-journalists who chronicled World War II and the road to independence; and the late 20th-century professionals who have documented the extraordinary post-independence changes to the island.

The two-year quest for the new and compelling unearthed fresh images, which are reproduced alongside classics without which no visual history of Singapore would be complete. Each image conveys a strong sense of place, and together they tell the story of a nation of mainly immigrant stock and the island they transformed from a fishing village to a global city state.
