Comments Tales of Old Singapore

  • Ryan

    A somewhat oddball mix of stories and snippets from the island's founding by the British in the early 19th century to its independence in 1965. If one can imagine a collection of a history textbook's 'special subject' boxes and highlights that occur in every chapter, this book would be it. The reader is offered snapshots in words from book excerpts with at times accompanying sepia photographs or colorful illustrations and cartoons, into the everyday lives of the locals during those colonial days [...]


  • Oranje

    This book does not aspire to be teaching history. It does aspire though to transmit a flavour of Singapore before it declared independence and it achieves this, although the extracts used are in vast majority by british or Europeans.


  • Amanda Banks

    A fluffy book, heavy on pictures and interesting colonialist anecdotes, light on actual content. A fairly fun read but suffers from pro-British colonialism bias (to the point it can be awkward to read) and lack of rigorous thinking. Grade: C-


  • Art Fazil

    It was nice to read the various excerpts from many writings about Singapore. I get to get a glimpse of the old word reading this book.
