Pioneers of Singapore
We always hear the names Raffles or Farquhar whenever we discuss Singapore’s early history. But what of the many other pioneers who were just as important? What are their stories?
Accompanied by lively, charming illustrations, Pioneers of Singapore brings you the accounts of thirty-five key figures in Singapore’s colonial history. Some of them include:
Who broke up one of the biggest communal riots in Singapore?
Who founded the first hospital in Singapore that was built entirely without help from the government?
Who produced the first comprehensive map of Singapore and designed most of its early buildings?
Read on as our forefathers come to life with the help of comic artist Alan Bay (Once Upon a Singapore… Traders)’s beautiful artwork, as the 2004 bestseller returns in an all-new coloured edition!
