Good news for built heritage enthusiasts: 23 editions of Singapore’s street directories from 1954 to 2009 are now online for viewing and downloading! Old street directories are a great way to observe transformations of a place over time, and to get a glimpse of how a place used to be like, if photographs are not available.
The maps can be accessed here.
Hi all, there seems to be some issues with viewing the photos on this site. I’m in the process of transferring them over to another host. It might take a while, so sorry about that!
On 27th September, we celebrated the 60th birthday of Queenstown. Being the first satellite town to be built by the HDB, many Singaporeans share memories of the place. Over the past 60 years, Queenstown has changed. Some places were lost, some remained, but all will stay in our memories. What are your memories of Queenstown?
In recent years, I have been travelling around Singapore, capturing shots of places around Singapore before they disappear. This blog was set up to consolidate all these photos and any other relevant information that I have gathered. I’ll be posting them up shortly. Stay tuned!
