SGD 19.25

A SINGAPORE NEIGHBOURHOOD IN THE 1950s AND 1960s

THIS book takes a look back at life in the 1950s and 1960s in the Chin Swee Road enclave. The author recounts the many characters in the drama that unfolded in this neighbourhood, set against the backdrop of a rapidly modernizing Singapore. With the help of sketches and maps drawn from memory, the author’s detailed narrative of street life is a contribution to the continuing Singapore story. These vignettes will jog memories of older readers, and hopefully more will be inspired to tell their own stories for the record. For youngsters, this book is a window to bygone days. Young or old, we all need answers to perennial questions about our sense of belonging and our roots. Memories of Chin Swee Road aims to help in this quest.
