Vintage Singapore: 1950s
Straits Times Press, in collaboration with Singapore Post, is launching Vintage Singapore: 1950s – the third of a series of exclusive postcard books featuring 20 iconic moments in mid 20th century Singapore. Only 2,600 of these limited edition Vintage Singapore: 1950s postcard books will be printed. The book contains 20 detachable postcards, each with local prepaid postage included. Mail them for free within Singapore. All images in the book were curated from Singapore Press Holdings’ extensive archives by Joyce Fang of The Straits Times Picture Desk.

Within the book are unforgettable vintage images of a bygone era. Take a peek at a time when people had to work hard for a living – from the weather-beaten coolies unloading goods from barges at Boat Quay, to the young shoeshine boy who scampers around Bras Basah Road in search of customers – and yet, found joy in the simple things: whether it be a cooling coconut drink on a hot day, or a short trip to the amusement centre at night.

Get glimpses of little-known scenes too, such as the hole-in-a-wall provision store, and snake charmers plying their trade. They reflect the special moments of the everyday Singaporean who lived in a decade when the country was emerging from colonial rule, enroute to self-governance.
