Rating
This is a lavishly illustrated virtual tour of Singapore between the 1840s and the early 1900s - a bustling metropolis that has now changed beyond recognition. Featuring more than 120 rare photographs from leading institutions and private collections, this superbly illustrated volume takes readers on evocative virtual tour of Singapore, from the early 1840s to the 1900s. Emphasising the topographical and architectural landscape of the city and its surroundings, "Singapore Through 19th-Century Photographs" paints an intimate portrait of a vibrant metropolis that has now changed beyond recognition. This volume also presents a fascinating exploration of this defining period in the history of commercial photography - when many Western studio photographers began to seek their fortunes in the Orient, leading to an unprecedented level of rapid development.
