About the Book

Singapore in the 1960s was very different from the city today. We often hear the older generation speak of the good old days. If you have ever wondered what Singapore looked like some 60 years ago, the answer is in these beautiful postcard books.

Mun Chor Seng started taking photos in his teens and over the last six decades has captured many aspects of Singapore. Thirty-six of his photos from the 1960s have been specially selected and compiled into two books of postcards: Singapore Moments and Singapore Memories.

Each book of 18 postcards features aspects of what life was like in the early years of independence as well as street scenes and locations that have since been demolished. The back of each postcard features detailed captions that provide the context of the photo that is presented.
