vintagesingaporeDear all, if you like to collect old items or have some special feeling to the past time that your parents or grandparents live, I strongly recommend you to read this book. It is like a picture album where it showcase pictures of old photos, posters, advertisement, dolls in Singapore from the 1940s to 1970s.

There are altogether six chapters in this book.  The first chapter “Keepsakes from the Past” reminds us the importance of remembering the contribution of the older generation. The remaining chapters are in five categories – “Singapore Science”, “Singapore Dining”, “Singapore Childhood”, “Singapore Style” and “Singapore Home”.

Interesting items such as the Ovaltine drink and old F&N brand can be found under the section “Singapore Dining”. You may find old toys that you have played during your childhood days in the section “Singapore Childhood”. Start picking up the book to read and find your own memories in this book now.
