Singapore: 500 Early Postcards, Singapore through 19th Century Prints & Paintings
I picked these two up at Borders recently. I have been reading up on Singapore over the last few years. I have always been fascinated with the developed of the cityscape, the urban development. Much of our history has been written as that of a political narrative, the great movements of history, the deeds of the leaders, the wars and more. However, the social history, architecture history and urban narrative are something else.
These two fascinating volumes are, of course, glimpses as seen through the photographers and painters' eyes.
